Macaron Parlour: Second Location Upper West Side

Dessert lovers rejoice!  Macaron Parlour owned by talented married couple, Christine Ha and Simon Tung, has a new location in the Upper West Side located at  560 Columbus Avenue between 87th & 87th Streets.  I was fortunate to be invited to their press launch and sampled lots of delicious treats.  
Aside from the traditional macaron flavors (chocolate, lemon, hazelnut, etc.), Macaron Parlour has some unique flavors such as Cheetos, Rosemary and Olive Oil, and my personal favorite, the savory Thai Chili.

 I brought some back for my boyfriend, who loved the candied bacon and maple macaron.   They also have an tasty assortment of pastries, including a tart and buttery raspberry croissant, and a classic Mint Thin cookie.  If you’re more into savory pastries, the Chipotle, cheddar, scallion scone was a winner.  For those of you in the East Village, you can visit the original Macaron Parlour at 111 St. Marks Place.

Rasberry Croissant was a perfect blend of tart berry and buttery pastry
