  1. I cannot imagine a topic about which it could be any more fun to conduct your own research.

    1. Don't know if it's the "best", but it's the one I like the best, and it's found at Tholoniat 47 rue du château d'eau in the 10th. If you go, you shoud try the "Tholoniat", the eponymous semifreddo that is to die for, and from.

        Her chocolate nougat is great and incredibly beautiful as well.

      2. Dominique Saibron, rue d'Alésia ; Carl Marletti, rue Censier ; Au Pain de Sucre, rue Rambuteau.

        1. Guy Savoy > Jacques Genin > Pierre Herme - IMO.

            My husband requested (in French) a Napoleon at Gerard Mulot. The woman behind the counter looked really perplexed. My husband started to describe what a Napolean was and then saw one and pointed. She started laughing and said in French that it was a "millefeuille". She must have thought, why is this guy talking about Napoleon!

          2. I never liked them at all until I had one at Jacques Genin. It was a life-altering experience.
