La Maison du Chocolat Midtown

I stopped by La Maison du Chocolat after an interview today to pick up some thank you macarons.

Mabel and I were locked out of our building Saturday night (what are the chances that both of us would forget our keys?) and none of the people who held our spares were in. So we had to buzz and wake up our next door neighbor, crawl out their window onto the fire escape, and then break into our apartment.

So I made my way in the rain to the Rockefeller Center location. A great feature of the LMC in midtown is that you don't have to go outside from the subway to get to it, which was a nice bonus on this very, very rainy day.

They were giving out sample chocolates! Since I made the trip, I figured I should get something for ourselves, so I got an extra box of macarons and also this cookie thing.

I figured for $5.50 it better be awesome.

It's called a Bouchee Florentin and it's pretty good. Crunchy and toasty with a lingering flavor of orange peel, but I'd much rather be eating a Levain cookie for that kind of money.
