Maison de Castelnau in Chicago
I saw a review of this the other day in the Tribune. On Bryn Mawr just east of Kimball. Since I was longing for the croissants I had had in Paris I decided to give it a try.
It's a very beautiful small room.
This is a sample of a very strong, dark drinking chocolate. When I said it was too dark for me, she said she could make a kids version with more milk.
The chocolate croissant was just out of the oven, and the baguette was still slightly warm. She actually gave me just half of a baguette. I think the butter was the same brand as what we had in Europe.
This is my kids drinking chocolate. I think I would have preferred whipped cream to the foam.
About 10 or so minutes later the plain croissants came out of the oven.
While it wasn't quite the same as some of what I had in Paris, it was still pretty damn good. They have some quiches and some other pastries which would certainly be worth a try. I enjoyed it ver much.
