$3 Macaron

I'm not a huge macaron connoisseur, but there's been some buzz in NYC about this famous macaron joint from Paris opening up in NYC. My wife ended up waiting an hour at Laduree in the upper east side to pick up these pastries.

I don't quite get what the fuss is all about. I'm not a huge fan of overly sweet desserts and this was definitely too sweet in my opinion. The texture and flavors are excellent minus the cloying sweetness. Definitely not worth the hour wait or the $3 cost per macaron. Not sure how this joint is in Paris - guessing they're dumbing things down for Americans by sweetening things up.
