Following Berthillon's long reign as the nearly the only choice when it came to quality ice cream, this boutique ice cream parlor opened up in the Marais only a few years ago and quickly saw lines a street long trailing out their doors daily. The cool and sweet talent behind this shop is Chef Emmanuel Ryon, decorated with the Meilleur Ouvrier de France (high accolades by French standards) designation and specialized in ice cream. His partner, Olivier, handles the business side of things. For a real treat, indulge in his ice cream pastries. The Fraisier consistently gets high ratings and one taste will tell you all you need to know. They are like little ice cream cakes. Another cult product here is their Babas soaked in rum. You can buy them in a glass jar and take them home to put over your vanilla ice cream just before devouring.
- Ice Cream: "Smoked vanilla and smoked chocolate are a few of my favorite things here. But they've also just come out with a black lemon flavor that is as exotic as it is tart and flavorful. All their ice cream is made on site, no small feat when you consider they sell about 5000 ice cream cones per weekend in the summer."
- Best for Ice Cream Because: This pastry-chef-trained ice cream genius has succeeded in crafting a distinctly French identity for ice cream. Call it French touch ice cream if you will.
