Dousoeur de Paris, a New French Patisserie in Hell's Kitchen

Editor's note: Every afternoon we like to post a short Sugar Rush to end your day. Think of it as the dessert to your daily blog reading. —Zach

"This hardcore French patisserie just opened up on 10th Ave. and 46th Street," Zach instant messaged me. "They have a macaron Christmas tree in the front window."

Hardcore French patisserie with a macaron tree? Zach, you said the magic words. He sent me this photo as proof of the macaron tree's existence and to make me wimper with macaron lust. Even though the macarons on the tree look a bit battered, I assume the fresh macarons are more photogenic. Unfortunately, their macarons are only available by special order at the moment, but there are plenty of other goodies in their patisserie. Check out this interior shot after the jump.
