L’ÉCLAIR DE GÉNIE
Adam has given the traditional French éclair a makeover using flavors like salted caramel, yuzu and piña colada. Among his 84 creations: the Rouge Baiser, an éclair with a high-shine red glaze made of raspberries; the Xmas Mama, an éclair featuring a digital print of a pinup girl, and the Black Éclair, a tribute to the Little Black Dress, with dark chocolate and white truffle. Prices range from 5 to 8 euros, or $7 to $11 at current exchange. In addition to two Paris locations (in the chic 16th arrondissement and in the Marais), there are new locations on tap in Dubai and Japan. New York may follow, Adam says.
