JEAN-PAUL HEVIN, great pastries and stratospheric chocolates

MARIA LUISA, a very honest pizza in Paris

There’s so much hype now around the Canal Saint Martin, it seems like every new concept opening in Paris is located in this area.

My father is always well informed and told me the sous chef at Abri hah opened her own izakaya, this traditional Japanese restaurant, in Paris: it’s called 6036.
