The macarons come in three exotic-sounding flavors: lavender, blood orange and lemon-thyme. While very tasty - as pretty much anything sugary with a cream filling is - Ladurée these are not. The cookie part is a tad too cakey, the cream a bit too frosting-like and sweet, and the overall effect closer to that of a whoopie pie than a traditional macaron. (Also, the "blood orange" tasted like a Creamsicle.) We'll give them points for effort, but with so many great places to get macarons on the Upper East Side, they're going to have to up their game if they want to compete in the big leagues.
