I was back in New York again for a couple days this week and while checking out the new High Line with my father (in the Meatpacking District), I stopped by La Bergamote Patisserie for a cup of tea. To my surprise, in addition to having a display case full of decadent french pastries and cakes, La Bergamote Patisserie also had macarons. I sampled a bergamot flavoured macaron and it was so-so. The outside case was a bit too chewy and the inside was over loaded with butter cream. However, the bergamot flavour was excellent.
My dad also said he had one of the best latte in the city at the patisserie, and there is something to be said for that coming from someone who drinks three to four a day.
