We all know I'm a junky for sugar. Dessert is my calling and I'd forgo any meal for a bowl of ice cream ... and I have plenty of friends who'd agree with my sentiment. That being said, when I was invited to a private tasting at Francois Payard's newest location in Columbus Circle (58th and Broadway) to taste their latest offering, ice cream, I couldn't hop on an uptown train faster.
Better than just ice cream, Fancois Payard's 3 locations are making ice cream sandwiches with artisanal ice cream sandwiches between ... get this, French macaroons. AH! I wish I was Oprah so that I could do her big "AHH!"
These treats are available at all locations of Francois Payard Bakeries and FP Patisserie and were designed by Chef Francois Payard.
