The Guilty Pleasure: Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches Where to Get It: Pho 43, 43rd Ave and Thomas Price: $3.75 What it Really Costs: Somehow, regular macarons weren't unhealthy enough yet.
I'm a little dismayed that macaron mania seems to have come and gone. I'm not exactly surprised, though. They are a pain in the ass to make. Still, I'd rather have a macaron or two instead of those over-frosted cupcakes that I'm somewhat glad to see are on the wane.
While macarons may not be quite as chic as they once were, there are still a number of places around town that serve up some mighty fine ones. Eugenia Theodosopoulous and the rest of the gang at Essence Bakery still crank out some of the best in town.
