Stohrer Restaurant Review

: One gets the feeling that Stohrer, ensconced in the 2nd arrondissement near the old Les Halles market, hasn’t changed that much since one of Louis XV’s own pastry chefs opened the place in 1730. It doesn’t seem as consumed with current trends as some of the more contemporary pâtisseries in Paris. While certainly beautiful, there is a more rustic quality to many of the tarts and cakes, which lack the overly-conscious aestheticism of some competitors. Babas au rhum with fruit or Chantilly cream, individual apple tarts and petit puits d’amour (little crowns filled with pastry cream) are among the specialties. A wide selection of savory items, including enticing pâtés and salads, are also available in this historic establishment, filled with antique murals and chandeliers.
