I don't know why, but it ain't easy to find a good éclair in this town. We've got ourselves a couple of famous chocolatier imports, and everyone and their dog seems to be selling macarons in every Pantone color. But I'd be hard pressed to name three places where I can find a good version of the classic cream-filled pastry.
Suddenly, though, éclairs have become the latest
I had read about Christophe Adam opening up L'éclair de Génie in town, although I hadn't gone out of my way to get some. As I was strolling through Pacific Place, though, I unexpectedly came across a pop-up store... so I figured I'd get a few to try.
I was a pretty happy camper... and I think I'll get myself some more of these and try out the other flavors.
