Gertel's Bake Shoppe

53 Hester St.
New York, NY 10002
At Gertel's, everything is Kosher for Passover, so if those rum balls strike your fancy, go for it. But the macaroons, available in coconut or almond, are not to be missed. They come pre-packaged (about 20 for $9), but have no fearathey are freshly baked on the premises. In fact, theyare some of New Yorkas best macaroons. They're large, airy and dry outside, and chewy just in the center. The real standout feature is the toasty, crunchy brown exterior. Of course, many people like their macaroons sticky and wet, and if that's you, keep moving.
