Macaron Café's Parisian owner, Arnaud Cannone, moved to New York City in 2006 with the dream of opening a series of boutique cafés specializing in macarons. His tiny shops target women: The walls are painted in every discernible shade of pink—hot, rosy, pale, and salmon—with polka-dot accents. While a variety of salads and sandwiches draw a lunch crowd, there’s no mistaking the main attraction. Clusters of pastel-hued macarons ensconced in glass suspend from the ceiling, and a display case flaunts the treats in classic and exotic flavors like honey and lavender, chocolate, raspberry, espresso, and Jordan almond. Seating is virtually nonexistent, available only along portions of the perimeter. Fashion-district employees (indeed, mostly female) flock to the central macaron counter to pick up clear cylinders of treats, but also grab a range of savory dishes to go. French staples include a Niçoise salad, quiche Lorraine, French onion soup, a croque monsieur, and other sandwiches filled with gruyere, brie, or ham.
