Though born in Russia, Chef Elena Krasnova's heart has always been in the city of love, lights, and decadent pastries. At Mon Paris Patisserie she expresses her unique artistic gifts with exquisite confections, include single-origin chocolates and airy macarons. Inside her 1,000-square-foot café, guests can chat over chocolate croissants and European-style coffees. Or, stop in for a sample of Chef Krasnova's specialty ganaches, like the Granita—pomegranate—or Maduxa, made from balsamic-vinegar reduction and dark chocolate.
