Olivia Macaron is the latest confirmed tenant in the renovated Shops at Georgetown Park. The shop will be on the M Street level across from Dean & Deluca.
Owner Anna Claudia Lopez received Advisory Neighborhood Commission approval Monday for signage for her Georgetown store, which will bring macarons—confectioneries made of sweet meringue—to M Street.
Macaron Bee, another independent macaron store, opened on Wisconsin Avenue last May and has become a popular choice among locals for a sweet treat or a dinner party gift.
Lopez told Patch she does not yet have a website or Facebook page for her new business, in part because she's been working away at getting permits to the new space in the mall.

The Shops at Georgetown Park have been undergoing renovations for more than a year.
Recently the Colonial Park garage re-opened and J.Crew moved from its previous storefront to a new, larger space farther west on M Street, NW.
Do you think there will be enough demand for more than one macaron shop in Georgetown?
