Last week, I wrote a post
asking why I cannot find decent macarons in the United States. Apparently, I'm not looking hard enough. Comments from all over the country revealed people's favorite shops where they buy them. Although I have not yet tried the macarons at all these places, I thought it would be useful to create a U.S. macaron directory.
So far, it looks like most of these places are located in California. Feel free to comment with new shops to add to the directory!
recommends Pistacia Vera
at 541 south third street. Try their salted caramel macarons.
: Ann suggests that we try the macarons at 316 North Milwaukee St., at Harlequin Bakery

To think that in my own city I failed to discover Macaron Café
which is just around the corner from my mother's office at 161 west 36th street, just off 7th avenue. Thanks Tom Avel
for letting us know about this shop. Kat Kinsman
enjoyed the macarons from Alain Ducasse's Adour
at the St. Regis hotel.
Although I did not care for Thomas Keller's macarons at Buchon Bakery in NY, Kelly
enjoyed them at Keller's Buchon
in Yountville at 6534 Washington st.San Francisco, California: Verena
at 2325 Pine Street. Ivan
claims that Tartine Bakery
at 600 Guerreo St., by 18th street, is the place to buy macarons. Mathew
points out another shop located at the Ferry Building Marketplace, shop No. 10 - Miette.
Verena also reccomends Masse's Pastries at 1469 Shattuck Ave.Los Angeles, California: Jon
raves about the macarons at Boule

: Apart from Boule's Beverly Hills location, you can stroll into Paulette
