18. Blueberry Ginger Macaron from French Grocery
Don't let the electric blue exterior of this delicate little pastry scare you. It doesn't look like it's going to taste nearly as good as it does, we'll admit -- but once you bite into this macaron you get a subtle balance of flavors we truly love.
The blueberry ginger macaron parisien at French Grocery is fruit and sweet without being overly so and delivers a touch of ginger. We love that it's a light dessert with a perfect balance of sweet and tart. The delicately crisp outer shell encases a soft layer of cookie and creme.
The only problem for those seeking their own macaron fix is that the restaurant's menu of macaron flavors changes everyday. You'll want to call ahead to figure out exactly what's available.
