Pink Flamingo in Paris: A different kind of pizza.

Pink Flamingo in Paris: A different kind of pizza.

*UPDATE: PINK FLAMINGO OPENED IT’S FOURTH PIZZA JOINT IN PARIS. IT IS LOCATED IN MONTMARTRE (18TH ARRONDISSEMENT.)

If you want a regular (as in classic flavor) pizza, you might want to try a different place. Aside from La Dante (tomato-mozzarella-basil) or La Cantona (8 cheeses), Pink Flamingo likes to offer flavors that will make you travel, which can be very useful if, for example, you can’t decide between pizza and Indian food (try La Gandhi: sag paneer, baba ganoush and mozzarella), or pizza and Spanish food (try L’Almodovar: pizza paëlla), or pizza and North African food (try La Macias: chicken cooked tajine style with cured lemon and olives)… Among the less unusual ones there’s also La Björk (smoked salmon, lumpfish roe and crème fraîche), La Basquiat (cured ham over gorgonzola and figs) or La Marcello (roquette with olive oil and balsamic vineger and parmesan.) As you might have noticed the pizzas are named after inspirational people who have made a difference in this world. While the pizzas are made in a traditional way—they use organic flour and all of the toppings are made with quality ingredients and fresh produce bought daily from the farmers market—Pink Flamingo likes to think of its product as something that stands out by its quality and novelty. And for dessert you can order some cheesecake.

Check out Pink Flamingo’s menu.
Deliveries are between 7pm and 11pm. They are made by foot or bike, hence the limited delivery area. Pink Flamingo cares more about the environment than getting the pizza to you super fast (that said, it’ll still get to you in a timely manner.) Last but not least, if you want to eat your pizza somewhere along the canal, you can order it at their restaurant in the 10th, leave with a Pink Flamingo balloon and when it’s ready they’ll come look for the balloon!
For food to go and to eat along the canal there’s also Le Cambodge restaurant.

Maison Clarté in Paris: The classy Repetto shoes.

Maison Clarté in Paris: The classy Repetto shoes.

You can go to Maison Clarté in Paris and, like Nan Goldin, buy some of the ornamental pieces in the gorgeous window displays and some of the furniture, or you can go there to buy Repetto shoes. Or both really—the stuffed birds, the chairs, the chandelier by Astier de Villatte and the beautiful antiques are all for sale. Maison Clarté is an exclusive seller of Repetto shoes, classic models as well as collectibles such as the zizi in jean, the MJ with rhinestones or the BB with zippers. The boutique is precious, stumbling upon it made me feel good for the rest of day.

Jacques Genin in Paris: The caramels, chocolates and pastries you don’t want to miss.

Jacques Genin in Paris: The caramels, chocolates and pastries you don’t want to miss.

There are the classic caramels, the famous ones au beurre salé (salty butter caramels) from Brittany and then there are the flavored ones such as the passion-mango caramels from Jacques Genin that are absolutely decadent and probably some of the best in the world—I weigh my words. Other flavors are: pistachio, almond, hazelnut, coffee, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, licorice… They are so soft and buttery you wonder how they manage to keep their shape and you tell yourself you can’t eat more than one but you can’t stop going back to them. His chocolates drive me nuts—oh! the caramelized almond Rochers, mmm the hazelnut pralinés! They are made with the finest ingredients, the flavors are as delicate as the patterns drawn onto their perfectly square shape and their names are as playful as they are appetizing. And then there are Jacques Genin’s pastries: he has mastered the art of the classic French pastries (éclair, Paris-Brest, tarte au chocolat noir, mille-feuille…)
After years of working in his lab and selling his treats to high-end restaurants and hotels, Jacques Genin has finally opened his own shop/tea salon. It is located a few blocks away from the busy area of rue de Bretagne, its trendy cafés and popular shops.
