|pain au chocolat a la Regis Colin|
Thus far, I have tried the offerings at Paul, Eric Kayser, and Régis Colin. A significant amount of my time is spent around the 2nd arrondissement and all three of these boulangeries can be found there. Paul is an international chain that I had tried once or twice in the USA. The quality at Parisian Paul locations is superior and the prices lower. It's still a chain, but a respectable one for the price. Eric Kayser is a pretty well-known international chain, too. Something about the ambiance feels vaguely more Parisian and I find the proportions and distribution of dough-to-chocolate superior to Paul.

The search will certainly continue and I welcome your suggestions of bakeries to try. Hopefully soon I will have a chance to explore the viennoiserie that Montmartre has to offer.
