Paris has finally arrived in Los Angeles... well, at least a very lovely reminder of it. I'm so excited to finally have a Ladurée near me, and two locations to frequent in West Hollywood at the Grove and one in Beverly Hills coming soon. The most famous and delicious Parisian macaron maker loved around the world has landed, Blair Waldorf would be proud. Enjoy! 

Of course I made sure to be one of the first in line when they opened, and it did not disappoint! A small, but quaint shop with the patisserie on the first floor, a small dining area upstairs and lots of al fresco seating along the Grove's central lawn. They have a good selection of macaroons, pastries, and chocolates, all with lovely little pastel boxes you can purchase them in and keep. They make a wonderful gifts and the boxes are good to keep as cute little storage. I have a matchbox collection in mine. 

The Grove location also has a restaurant, service, just like the one in Soho, New York. It has a small but good brunch menu, I had the avocado toast (surprise, surprise) and it was very good. I definitely will be coming again for more brunches with the girls and would recommend it as a great post shopping lunch spot too. Not sure yet if the Beverly Hills location will serve as a restaurant as well, but I'm crossing my fingers!

The space is small but as ethereal and whimsical as you would expect it to be. I love how the light pours into the high ceiling window, onto a lovely chandelier. They made very good use of space with a lofted second floor which offset a narrow floor plan. 

How glamorous is the dusty mirrored wall? And the shades of purple, green, pink and blue pastels gave me life! All the tables were done in a beautiful white marble and those classic gold rimmed, pastel border plates, no words...It's definitely going to become another uber Instagrammble spot for fashionistas, tourists and those who left their hearts in Paris.   

Welcome to LA!
