A few steps further along the Rue Saint Honoré is Jean-Paul Hévin’s shop and tearoom. Jean-Paul is an artist, modeling chocolate into stunning creations. The artwork in the window changes regularly - we saw a miniature Eiffel Tower and a high-heeled stiletto. At the cutting edge of design and experimentation, Jean-Paul also adds unusual flavors to his chocolates and pastries. We sampled a triple honey ganache with a delicate floral undertone, and a lime ganache that had a subtle hint of lime complementing the dark chocolate.
