Macarons are the new cupcake and they could be coming to Georgetown -- that is if Macaron Bee receives approval for its proposed store at 1669 Wisconsin Ave. Neighbors of the proposed confectionery shop are objecting to the owners' plans to alter the facade to serve macarons out the front window. The primary concerns are that a line of eager macaron purchasers would create noise and obstruct access to nearby properties.
The ANC first reviewed the project in December, approving the proposed window alterations, but on second review Tuesday, they passed a vaguely-worded resolution to move the project forward with concerns noted.
Neighbors have objected to the plan since they learned about it after the December ANC meeting.
