BREAKING: Itzy Bitzy's Macaron Delivery Schedule Confirmed!!

As you all are aware, I'm utterly addicted to Mitzy Budiono's macarons from Itzy Bitzy Patisserie, but one aspect of the macarons at Tafu was bothering me. What was the delivery schedule?! There were conflicting reports so I needed to go to the source herself, Mitzy.

Box of Macarons
Minutes after openly asking here in Midtown Lunch comments, I manned up and emailed Mitzy about my confusion (and love of her macarons.) She set me straight:

"Regarding the delivery, most of the time is early Monday morning before they open. In addition to that, when the stock is running low Tafu will let me know and I will deliver it the following day. Tafu is the one who decides which flavors and how much they want to carry in their store, so I can only suggest and try to work something out in order for them to carry all my monthly flavors and in enough quantity." - Mitzy

So there you go guys and gals, Monday morning is the time to go.

Tafu New York
569 Lexington Avenue (on the side of the Doubletree Hotel)
(212) 980-1310

P.S. I'm beginning to suspect that a macaron black market is forming. If anyone has a Hojicha, I am willing to pay top-dollar and/or in Snickerdoodles. Your anonymity will be respected. -Blondie

I am completely obsessed with these macaroons. I must go at least 2 days a week to buy 4-6 at a time. The vanilla and pistachio have me hooked!! I walk in the cold, rain and snow just to get these macaroons. I went yesterday and even though it was a Tuesday they seemed to have a much larger selection (I even was able to find the caramel which I could never get before). The lady behind the counter pulled out numerous containers which held more macaroons to refill the front area (whenever I had been there before I always was buying what seemed to be the last ones). I wonder if they are doing much larger deliveries now that they are selling out so often.

B&B, any idea who used to make Tafu's cupcakes??? They had these amazing mini matcha with dark/white chocolate cupcakes, and apparently they no longer carry them! The saleslady said they were replaced by the macarons. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the macarons but I really liked those mini-cupcakes too and have no idea where to get them. Although, the lady did say the baker used Tafu's green tea and therefore were exclusive to the store, but perhaps I can get the regular mini-cupcakes somewhere??
