Is there any place in LA that sells Macarons from Lauduree? I figured asking here was worth a shot.
I've tried so many places on the Westside, for anything that comes close to Lauduree. And, so far, my favorite is Jin's on Abbot Kinney. I tried Rose and Caramel/Salt. Wow, both are outstanding. It was as if I was chewing on a rose-flavored cloud!
Paulette's Macarons - I tried those, and thought they were too chewy and sweet (sweet in not a good way). The outside texture of the "cookie" part was too hard.
I also tried La Provence in BH. Very disappointing. And, they were rather large.
The only thing I can say about these are that they ARE macarons. More like CALIFORNIA Macarons, though.
