Since embarking on his entrepreneurial endeavors, this pastry chef extraordinaire has been popping all over Paris. One of his newer shops is in the beautiful neighborhood of Place St. Sulpice. One of the best things about visiting the shop and loading up on pastries and chocolates is that you can head across the street and sample your treasures while watching the beautiful fountain just in front of the St. Sulpice church. Michalak brings his fun and playful spirit to his pastry-making craft. Everything he does is infused with a rock-n-roll vibe - so expect the unexpected. For example, many of the pastry cakes actually come in small glass containers and are meant to be eaten with a spoon. Once you've visited you'll know exactly why the presentation is creative and deliciously pushes the boundaries in the world of French pastry-making. He also makes excellent chocolates.
- Patisseries: "There are a few French pastry chefs whose dexterity of hand and comprehension of precision when it comes to doses of flour, sugar, butter and cream make all the difference. Michalak is one of these and the results of his work in the kitchen are oh-so-flavorful pastry bombs."
- Best for Patisseries Because: The French pastries you find here are an all-together different re-imagning of what fine French pastry means.
