Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches are BACK at Francois Payard Bakery!

Macaron ice cream sandwiches are back for the summer season, with new packaging to make them easier to eat on-the-go. This year’s flavors are Salted Caramel, Pistachio Raspberry, Coconut Mango and Passionfruit Cheesecake and are available for $5 each at all NYC locations of Francois Payard Bakery and Patisserie. My personal favorite – the passionfruit cheesecake; the tartness of the passionfruit balances out the rich cheesecake flavor really well. Salted caramel is also delicious; a friend loved the coconut mango (which I couldn’t try due to my coconut allergy), saying that its flavors reminded her of summer.

Get them while you can!

Francois Payard Opens Today w/ Free Macarons

Thanks to Lunch’er Mike for sending along this one… a new Francois Payard Bakery opened in Columbus Circle today (on Broadway btw. 57+58th), and to celebrate they’re giving away a free macaron with every purchase. According to reports on our Downtown site they have all sorts of sandwiches and salads in addition to pastries, but Andrea says to avoid the McRiblike barbecue chicken sandwich.  Freeloading French pastry lovers, prepare to engage.
