This branch opened Thanksgiving 2010, and boy was I glad that Sucre is expanding and spreading its joy to other neighborhoods besides Garden district. It’s location is just outside the Lakeside mall, which makes it convenient for exhausted and hungry shoppers but not so much for people looking solely to assuage a sweet tooth.
Although the selection here is diverse and many, the price is also pretty high for dessert. Which makes this rare treat so much more special when it does happen.
The last time I had been here was over a year ago, and I had tried a few of the various cupcakes but mailed a box of macaroons to my S.O. I decided to treat myself to a box of macaroons this time!
This boutique specializes in hand-made chocolate desserts.
Not only can you get delicious gelato in the store, but you can also follow the Sucre Gelato Truck on twitter. http://twitter.com/SucreGelatoVan
Even the queen of Southern cuisine, aka Paula Deen, has recognized this gem in New Orleans as one of her favorite sweets in the South.
The genius in the kitchen is world famous and recognized for his skill, talent and creativity not only on the every day dessert scene but in the world of wedding cakes (which is the BIG DEAL for pastry chefs).
I tried the chocolate macaroon, almond macaroon, pistachio macaroon, pecan macaroon, strawberry macaroon, chocolate covered caramel macaroon, and hazelnut macaroon. They were so light and airy and flavorful. It was amazing how the entire thing just crumbles at the slightest pressure in your mouth and yet it’s not dry! It’s very moist!
