Ooh baby, sesame macarons.
Kyotofu celebrated its one-year anniversary in October by rolling out ridiculously cute bakery items like the chubby black-sesame-and-red-bean macarons shown above. On Monday, the Japanese dessert innovators will further expand the brand by opening what we'll call a Kyo kiosk at the BoConcept furniture shop in Chelsea. Throughout the winter, the delightful partnership will sprout several other chocolate-soufflé-cupcake and miso-choko (preter-brownie) stands at BoConcept locations in Soho, Dumbo, the Upper East Side, and midtown. In addition to the signature items, owner Michael Berl tells us the kiosks will stock other Kyotofu baked goods like green-tea and yuzu-vanilla, and coconut-shiso cupcakes; Genmai almond financiers; coconut-yuzu and chocolate-green-tea ganache macarons; spicy and espresso versions of mini miso chokos; gift packages; and cookies — lots of cookies. You can grab a cup of Japanese tea or coffee, but no word yet on whether you can enjoy your snack on a floor sample.
