A dessert bar in Paris? Dessance seems like yet another concept for hipsters. But the chef is not an amateur: Christophe Boucher worked for Ledoyen and le Grand Véfour. He delivers amazing desserts like you would have in three Michelins stars restaurants.
As a pre-dessert, we had a quince compote with mulled wine. It was very vegetal but incredibly fresh and flavorful. Then I had a great Baked Alaska (or omelette norvégienne in French), the meringue was whisky smoked and inside there was a fantastic chocolate biscuit with a caramel sauce. My friend had an intense chocolate bar while the intense was very crisp.
It will cost you €19 for a single dessert (including a pre-dessert), not that high considering all the work and the sophisticated design.
