Un Dimanche à Paris Opens New Gastronomic Restaurant

Un Dimanche a ParisIt’s no secret that chocolate lovers find their bliss in Paris. (Sweet tooths get their sugar fix at some of the world’s best chocolateries and patisseries. Pierre Hermé macarons, anyone?) One of our favorite spots is Un Dimanche à Paris, a chocolate concept store tucked in a charming alleyway just off Boulevard Saint Germain in the 6th arrondissement, created by Pierre Cluizel. The boutique offers all manner of delicious treats; the Salon de Thé serves one of the best cups of hot chocolate available in Paris; the lounge has chocolate-themed gourmet dishes and cocktails. Fabulous cooking classes are also available.

And now- to the great delight of Parisian foodies- a new gastronomic restaurant has opened upstairs in an atmospheric dining room, graced by an ancient tower, part of the Philippe-August fortress that protected the city walls in 1210. Order à la carte, or let yourself be surprised with a tasting menu. (75 euros for six courses; 105 euros with wine pairings.) Open from Tuesday to Saturday from 7 to 11:30 pm for dinner. For more information, visit www.un-dimanche-a-paris.com.  Note: The store has closed for annual vacation until August 21, 2012 at 3 pm.
