This Thursday, March 20, 2014, New York is celebrating its 4th Annual Macaron Day, a sugar-filled culinary adventure where one can try as many free macarons as they can (at least that’s how we play it), all to benefit City Harvest, the world’s first food rescue organization. In honor, we put together our top favorite macaron shops in the city. (Please note, not all of these are participating vendors, for a full list check out their website.)
8. Dana’s Bakery, Gansevoort Market
If you’re looking for a hybrid–French pastry, American flavors–Dana’s Bakery will be up your alley. Flavors include Rocket Mac (celebrates July 4th in red, white and blue), cookie dough, red velvet, and s’mores. There’s a little outpost inside Gansevoort Market.
