L’Éclair de Génie
L’Éclair de Génie is a unique patisserie specialising in, you guessed it, éclairs. Topped with all sorts of colours, patterns and designs, the éclairs here are something to behold.
The shop itself is bright, sleek and modern, designed to flaunt its wares. The whole concept is a little cloying, but the éclairs are just too good to pass up.
Helmed by avant-garde pâtissier Christophe Adam, l’Éclair de Génie only opened its first shop in Le Marais in December 2012, and already it has four other outlets in Paris – in the Galerie Commerciale du Passy Plazza, in Galeries Lafayette, and shops by Bourse and Odéon – as well as two others in Japan.
