DEATH BY CHOCOLATE

There is more to Ladurée than macarons. Nestled under the archways of Rue de Castiglione, off Place Vendôme, is a boutique dedicated to the pastry shop’s new brand, Les Marquis de Ladurée, which is entirely devoted to chocolate. Under Murano glass chandeliers, the marble counter, dotted with 18th century-style medallion portraits, holds an array of cocoa-flavored delights, from pastry (with recipes exclusive to the store) to pralines and chocolate bonbons. Of course there is the signature macaron, in a variety of chocolate flavors. Coming shortly are chocolate-making classes and tasting sessions in the store.

Les Marquis de Ladurée, 14 Rue de Castiglione, 75001 Paris. Tel.: +33-1-42-60-86-92. Open Mon.-Wed. 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Thurs.-Fri. 10 a.m.-7:30 p.m., Sat. 9:30 a.m.-7 p.m.

— Anne-Aymone Gheerbrant
