The only thing better than eating a Ladurée macaroon is consuming it at Ladurée itself. When home in America, I am never too far from the shop on the Upper East Side. It is quaint but lacks the dining atmosphere one finds in Europe due to its petite size. When in Paris, I have complete control over my Ladurée experience. At the Champs-Élysées location, I can sit on a swivel chair at the bar, make reservations for lunch or take macaroons away. They are best in Paris, although scooping them up from London's Burlington Arcade location on the way to class is far from merely settling.
