Celebrate Macaron Day with Six of Our Favorite Macarons in New York City

Happy Macaron Day, everyone! What—you didn't know?

Okay, so Macaron Day may just be a pernicious holiday invented by the French to make us buy $3 cookies, but we aren't exactly complaining.

As we learned during our epic taste test, not all macarons are created equal. And if you're going to spend several bucks on a two-bite treat, you might as well get the best. So here are six macarons that we can't stop thinking about from a few of our favorite bakeries. Picking up all six may run you close to $20 and a good bit of walking, but some perfect bites are worth it. And after all, it's a holiday.
