Let's start with Ladurée's signature product: the macarons ($3.15 per cookie). Here, from one o'clock going clockwise: chestnut; lemon; praline; chocolate-coconut; and rose petal.
From one o'clock going clockwise: strawberry candy; chocolate; wild berry-jasmine; vanilla; and salted caramel.
This multilayered confection ($10.50) starts with a meringue biscuit then adds strata of crushed hazelnuts, crispy praline, milk chocolate filling, thin leaves of milk chocolate, and chocolate whipped cream. It's capped off with a smooth milk chocolate ganache.
Chou Chantilly Nougatine
This oversized pâte à choux cream puff ($9) is filled with crispy nougat, vanilla pastry cream, and whipped cream.
A double-decker cream puff ($10) is filled with dense pistachio pastry cream and iced with pistachio icing.
St Honoré Rose Framboise
This extravaganza of a dessert ($11) is made up of both puff and choux pastries accompanied by rose petal cream, raspberry compote, fresh raspberries, and rosewater whipped cream. It's incredibly whimsical: each of those little side pastries are filled with rose petal cream, and, inside, there are raspberries stuffed with raspberry compote.
This oversized macaron ($11) is, according to one Ladurée worker, what Madonna orders on her birthday: two rose macron cookies encase rose petal cream, lychees, and whole raspberries.
Laduré offers a number of over-the-top sundaes. The Soho ($11) was created for the new location and pairs scoops of housemade salted caramel and ginger ice creams with whipped cream, candied macadamia nuts, and ginger caramel sauce.
