Had 2 back-to-back eclairs minutes apart at Delanghe on Fillmore (nicely mentioned by garçon a while ago) and La Boulangerie (which we've all talked about recently).
I liked the one from Delanghe more - the pastry was much lighter. My buddy also pointed out that there was a faint spike of booze in it - whether it was on the chocolate coating or the filling I couldn't tell. La Boulangerie's version was not bad (I got the version with the rich chocolat filling) but the crust was just not as ethereal.
Also had a couple of delightful little things from Delanghe (sorry I didn't get the names - it was point and eat):
a marzipan roll coated in chocolate (very good marzipan!)
a bittersweet truffle coated in a hard chocolate shell
a confection consisting of ultra-rich espresso-flavored cream in a shell of chocolate on a little soft, chewy almond cookie
(Also got a canele and a croque monsieur from LB.)
