Noisette in Paris?

johnmarseille | May 21, 2011 04:47 AM

Quick question for you Parisian swells: Especially in the morning I like a "noisette," expresso with a touch of warm milk, what Italians call "machiatto." At least that's what I order in Marseille, but a couple of times in Paris I've gotten blank, impatient looks when using the term. Have I just had bad luck? Will most Parisians in fact understand such an request? Thanks.
