‘Lette Macarons Coming Soon to Japanese Village Plaza in Downtown LA

‘lette is relocating from the Little Tokyo Shopping Center to the Japanese Village Plaza in Little Tokyo

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.”

    Much better location! Now I can easily execute my mochi vs macaron taste test! Prediction – both are awesome.

    This is great news for the plaza, which is obviously becoming more of an “international plaza” than a “Japanese plaza.”
    The French Macaron will be a welcome addition to the other great offerings in this neighborhood!

    Still the best macarons in L.A! I agree. Definitely a better location for them.
