Jacques Genin
The Marais

Voted the 'best chocolatier in the world' by critic Mort Rosenblum, Jacques Génin's creations could previously only be tasted in top restaurants. But now his impressive boutique allows you to taste sur place or take a bag home. The signature eclairs and tarts glisten in glass cases, and the millefeuilles are made to order for perfect freshness.

The chocolate ganaches include Menthe Amante, a two-phase taste sensation that finishes with mint leaves bursting on the tongue. One part of the vast space is given over to a tearoom, and a spiral staircase leads to the ateliers.

What an experience! We had chocolat chaud traditionnelle and cafe creme with 7 pieces of chocolate. The best 19.50 euros that I have spent since I have been in Paris. Simply a divine experience. We are chocolatiers from the U.S., and we are particular about our chocolate. These chocolates were superb.
