Turquoise one was either currant or earl gray flavored…as if it wasn’t pinky up already…throw on some edible gold flakes and let’s make like Marie Antoinette.
Oh dear. Did a stop by at my favorite little restaurant yesterday before a shoot I went to. I shouldn’t say little as this place is Grand…it was an old historical bank building.
I can write and write about how much Bottega Louie rules my fat kid eating face. But I can’t because I want this only to be about their macarons. That place is amazing. Good food, reasonable, great luxe ambiance sans bad acoustics of the building. Only bad thing is that they don’t take reservations and bringing your first date is no bueno, unless you plan for a yelling match the first time around.
Their macarons are absolutely delightful. They have some beautiful seasonal flavors such as currant, earl gray (my fave), cassias (violet), raspberry, pistachio, mandarin, passion fruit, and coffee…My god, they are delightful pieces of edible heaven. You must go.
Definitely gonna write a proper review on them soon. Doesn’t hurt either that the hostess Maria gives you some love to bypass the usual hour wait to sit at a coveted table. Oh ya, and she remembers my name, each and every time. Does that make me a foodie celebrity? NOOOOOoo…
I just eat there wayyyyy tooo muchhhh.
