Re: “Quick Bites: The Macaroon Boutique

Good review and I like this place too. That said, the dessert products they're serving are absolutely not "macaroons" -- they're macarons. Macaroons have long been familiar to American palates as coconut-based cookies. Macarons (which go by the same word in English and their original French) are a more recent arrival in the US and a different product altogether: cookies made from ground almonds and meringue, with a creamy filling in the middle. I know the words are similar, and I know the actual name of the business is "Macaroon Boutique." But we can still be accurate about it and write a sentence like "The Macaroon Boutique serves macarons."

I know it's a nitpicky complaint, but it's a real pet peeve of mine.
