Where Washington - - THE GUIDE -

The lux­ury French bak­ery’s new Ge­orge­town out­post of­fers a taste of la vie en rose. Delicacies here in­clude sweet treats like Vi­en­nese pas­tries and sa­vories like omelets and even hand- chopped beef tartare, all made on the premises. But the mac­arons are the real stars. Be­neath crys­tal chan­de­liers hung from a vaulted ceil­ing, visi­tors ooh and aah over the light-as-air cook­ies in a rainbow of fla­vors like black cur­rent vi­o­let. Can’t get enough? Take home a tote bag and scented can­dles, or pick up munchies for the road at the Union Sta­tion store, which also of­fers light meals to go. 3060 M St. NW, 202.737.0492; Union Sta­tion, 50 Mas­sachusetts Ave. NE, 202.789.5960, laduree.com
