Bisous Ciao Macarons Now Open at 101 Stanton

Posted on: September 1st, 2010 at 6:33 am by

Sweet tooths, take heed. Bisous Ciao Macarons opened for business yesterday, just two short weeks after announcing its Lower East Side presence with a bold new awning. Last night, the sole employee working the register informed us that the first day out was a success – decent sales and positive response. At this point, the boutique sweets shop is open until 7 pm daily, but management reportedly plans on extending the hours in the near future.

The Stanton store is the first brick and mortar for the dessert company, which was primarily a mail order operation. Until now. The interior has that antiseptic gallery-type vibe of not being able to touch anything, and wall decoration is somewhat lacking. Nevertheless, it is the beautifully-colored, attention-grabbing macarons in the glass cases which ultimately draw gazes. So mouth watering – try exiting without trying one of each.
