After doing time on the high-end patisserie scene in Paris, Jean-Marc Rué finally went independent in 2007, opening his own shop with his wife Keiko Orihara (a renowned chocolatière in her own right). Plumped in a residential corner of the 15th, Monsieur Chocolat caters to a clientele of regulars, who come for the chocolate bars with dried fruit or the salted caramel ganaches. You’ll often find Rué in his workshop in the back, busy fashioning figurines of landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower. You also stand a good chance of meeting Monsieur Chocolat himself – the Yorkshire terrier after whom this charming chocolate shop was named.
