The French bakery Ladurée is famous for their iconic double-decker pastel-hued macaroons. Their Beverly Hills bakery and restaurant occupies an airy and welcoming space on Beverly Drive. On September 26, Ladurée released their new plant-based menu in collaboration with renowned Chef Matthew Kenney. The Beverly Hills location is now Ladurée by Matthew Kenney with a full plant-based menu.
Ladurée USA co-president Elisabeth Holder Raberin reached out to Matthew to change the world one vegetable at a time. ‘
The teams at Ladurée and Matthew Kenney Cuisine collaborated on the vegan items as well as the creation of satisfying vegan pastries including a full array of plant-based macaroons offered.
Magic is definitely on the menu at Ladurée. Even a discerning lover of these treats would hardly notice the difference. Unsuspecting regulars may not even realize that signature favorites such as the omelets, croque-monsieur, burgers, and vol-au-vent, have swapped alternatives expertly crafted from cashew, tofu, or other plant-based ingredients. The innovative menu items are presented with flair and filled with flavor.
Take your French food-loving family members here as well as your vegan friends looking for the next best plant-based dishes. While the Beverly Hills location is completely plant-based, you’ll be able to find vegan macaroons and some menu items among the selection at Ladurée at The Grove or Americana at Brand. The experiment in innovation has served up stylish food with vegan substance.
Visit Ladurée by Matthew Kenney at 311 North Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills.
