Mitzy came by with macarons…o_O!

I’m sure you have not forgotten about Mitzy, the amazing woman behind Itzy Bitzy Patisserie. She moved back to Indonesia last summer, and along with her left the best macarons in NYC. Well guess what? She came back for a short visit a few weeks back, and we finally meet up yesterday afternoon along with Tina. It has been a long long time since I’ve seen Mitzy, so you can imagine how lovely it was when the three of us sat down for sweets at Lady M. Afternoon coffee and tea, mille crepe, matcha cake, and a banana mille feuille wedge (goodness, the cream custard on this was ridiculous, whipped with a little cream, fresh bananas tucked between chilled layers) shared between three.

The first thing Mitzy did when she walked in was gift us with boxes of fresh macarons. Happiness!! That’s vanilla in the middle sandwiched by chocolate-orange on the bottom and chocolate on the top. Still the best in town :)

[Mitzy's will be back in NYC from May-July and will be selling her macarons during those months...will keep you posted!]

    I was wondering what happened to Mitzy and her macaroons!!!! I missed them so much :( I would go to the Brooklyn Flea Market and also pick them up by my job when they were being sold around midtown east… Thanks for the update! Can't wait to get my hands on the macaroons again!

    OMGOMGOMG!!! I had Mitzy's macarons once when I visited Tafu last spring (very shortly before they tragically closed) and was soooo sad to hear she had taken her magical macaron-making self all the way to Indonesia. I foresee a lot of macaron overdoses this summer….
