The historic French pastries will debut in Portugal, with a shop and a tea room. Known for its famous macarons, Ladurée will open on Avenida da Liberdade in Lisbon, next to the Tivoli Theater next March.

The Ladurée, founded in 1862 by Louis Ernest Ladurée, initially functioned as a bakery. Changes made in Parisian society at the turn of the century have made it adapt and transform into pastry and tea house. The original recipe for macarons was created by the grandson, Pierre Desfontaines, in the 1930s. The success was such that these delicatessens ascended to the worldwide fame that we still know today. Its flavors can vary between chocolate, caramel, red berries, bergamot, pistachio, among others.

With shops scattered throughout dozens of cities and countries, they now come to the Portuguese capital. Its owners are Paula Amorim and Miguel Guedes de Sousa, partners of Fashion Clinic, who will also open a restaurant called "Je Ne Sais Quois", whose menu is the responsibility of Chef António Bóia, from restaurant "Rio's" in Oeiras , And the pastry chef is Joaquim de Sousa, from "The Oitavos" in Cascais. On the floor below of this new space there will be a deli bar and a fine grocery store.

A sweet novelty and a guaranteed success...
