Bon soir, French chowhounds. My wife will be traveling in Paris with a friend this weekend and early into next week. I've given her the task, readily and quickly accepted, to find the best kouign aman in Paris. My sister-in-law has already suggested Laduree, and a Sept '10 posting on the France board suggested Hugo and Victor and Philippe Conticini's La Patisserie des Reves.
Wife and friend are keen to try out the pastry in its natural habitat (yes, yes, I know it's Breton; Paris at least is in France while we are in DC!) and would like to sample different version.
Merci for any and all suggestions.
