Best French-style patisserie in Chicago?

baird | Jul 16, 2009 01:40 PM

Does anyone have recommendations on the best patisserie in the city?

Used to live in Paris and loved the eclairs, tartes aux fraixes, tartes aux pommes, religeuses, pain au chocolat, etc., that one could find on virtually every street corner.

For the life of me though I cannot find a place in Chicago that does these right (and by right of course I mean Parisian style). "Sweet Thang" had an awful name but the pastry chef there wasn't too bad, but unfortunately it closed. And Medici Bakery is not bad either, but it's not authentic.
