FAVORITE SWEET SHOP:
SUCRÉ




New Orleanians seem to like their little dose of Willy Wonka, especially now that it has two locations.

Sucré, the brainchild of co-owner Joel Dondis and head pastry chef and co-owner Tariq Hanna – serves macarons, artisan chocolates, King Cakes, gelato, marshmallows, drinking chocolate, candied pecans, coffee, chocolate bars, cupcakes, barks, shakes, gift sets and umbrellas. They even have a free iPad/iPhone game called “Sucré Macaron Madness.”

Often when one tries to do too many things, everything suffers. But with Sucré, the more options they add, the sweeter the taste becomes.

In addition to all of this, the chefs at Sucré create petit fours and one-of-a-kind sculptured cakes for weddings and events, as well as catering dessert receptions and creating unforgettable favors.

As if the tastes weren’t enough, Sucré boasts airy spaces decorated with cheerful, almost mod colors, desserts that seem too pretty to eat presented elegantly and packaging that’s well considered and almost as addicting as their macarons. And, if you can’t make to one of their locations, you can order from their website.

Sucré, 3025 Magazine St., 520-8311; Lakeside Mall, 3301 Veterans Blvd., Metairie, 834-2277; ShopSucre.com

EDITOR’S PICKS

SAVORY FIREMEN AWARD
There are lots of joke possibilities to the notion of a pie factory burning, but we choose to make none of them as we mourn the destruction of the Hubig’s Pie factory in Marigny. (Hubig’s symbol was a corpulent baker named Savory Simon.) The owners say they will rebuild. We will do the same with our appetites.
