WASHINGTON, DC. - Ladurée, one of France’s most famed bakeries, opens its doors today at 10 a.m..

The 1100 square-foot space will serve plenty of colorful macarons, of course, but also breakfast, brunch, lunch, early dinner, coffee, pastries, and cocktails. The breakfast menu features dishes like toasted brioche ($13) and omelettes ($13). At lunch, there’s duck foie gras ($26) and a club sandwich ($19) with fries. Plat du jour items—served with two macarons and a coffee for $29.50—are also available during weekday lunch. Tuesdays, it’s pan-seared rack of lamb; on Fridays, you’ll find lobster ravioli.

The restaurant’s interior was designed to feel like a French salon, full of pastel greens, blues, and pinks. It’s decorated with custom furniture, pieces from Parisian antique shops, and family relics.

The macaron-making happens in a pastry lab—some of the pastry cooks were recruited from the Paris and New York Ladurée locations.
