If you thought the best part of visiting a Ladurée shop was the macarons, think again. The famed French confectioner recently opened their first U.S. restaurant in SoHo featuring a garden terrace inspired by the architecture of Gustave Eiffel. The cherry tree-lined patio is the perfect spot to dine al fresco while sipping on one of their specialty cocktails from the full-service bar. And just in time for Fashion Week, they will be updating the menu with new libations direct from their Parisian flagships. Go for decadent drinks like the Cassis Violette, a mix of Bombay Sapphire and violet liqueur, or the subtle Rose, with vodka and rose water. Plus each one comes topped with a delicious macaroon for a twice-as-nice treat. Très chic for sure.
