What do you get when you pair these two icons?
It goes without saying that if you want the best you have to learn from the best!
Ladurée, the 150-year old iconic French restaurant and teahouse, and the esteemed NYC French Bistro, Bagatelle have collaborated on a special pop-up.
Trust us, you will want to book right away, before its too late.
The Ladurée, history of Parisian tea rooms is intimately tied to the history of the Ladurée family. It all began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, a man from France’s southwest, created a bakery in Paris at 16 rue Royale.
Louis Ernest Ladurée’s wife, Jeanne Souchard, had the idea of mixing styles. The Parisian café and pastry shop gave birth to one of the first tea rooms in town. The ”salon de had a definite advantage over the cafés, women could gather in complete freedom. At the time being a woman and able to gather was not what women of today have the freedom to experience.
Ladurée’s refined atmosphere, laden with history, caught the attention of David Holder and his father Francis Holder, founder of the Holder Group.
In 2011 New York City was graced with the first Ladurée on Madison Avenue followed by the US’s first full restaurant and garden in New York’s trendy Soho neighborhood.
Since its opening in February 2014, the Parisian husband-and-wife team of Elisabeth Holder Raberin and Pierre Antoine Raberin has been running the iconic SoHo tea salon.
Holder Raberin’s family bought the original little Ladurée bakery on Rue Royale in 1997, but it’s been in Elisabeth’s blood long before that. “We used to go there for lunch every Saturday when my brother was studying in Paris,” she remembered and explained, “You don’t discover Ladurée, you grow up with it in France.”
“To this day the Ladurèe is a global institution and the best locale to indulge in dèlicieuse French cuisine, and pastries, in an ambiance vraiment française.” Grace A. Capobianco
