Last month, ‘lette — famous for their French macarons — closed down their location in the Little Tokyo Shopping Center at 3rd and Alameda (also home of Woori Market). Luckily, the LA-based pastry shop (originally from Beverly Hills) won’t be ditching Little Tokyo permanently, but instead will just be relocating to a much more central location at the Japanese Village Plaza, which has become one of Downtown LA’s most popular destinations after it received a successful renovation back in summer 2010.
With 4 other locations in the LA area (Beverly Hills, Larchmont Village, Pasadena, and Newport Beach), ‘lette has gained a loyal following of macaron lovers (scoring 4.5 out of 5 stars on Yelp). The new location in Little Tokyo is currently under construction and should open within the next several months.
According to their website, “‘lette’s unique macarons are hand-made daily in our [store] bakery. Working with master pastry chef Christophe Michalak, we’ve dedicated ourselves to creating a new and original take on this Parisian specialty.”
