Spending some time in Paris will change anyone, though depending on how many dudes are "visiting" her at the same time, the symptoms should clear up with some antibiotics. Bringing skills to the Loop honed in the far less visited city of Paris: Toni Patisserie & Cafe.
From a pastry chef who got her start in Chi before working in the motherland of all things epicurean, TP&C's new Loop location (the original's in the 'burbs) is turning out boulangerie-style eats from a 30-seat, open-kitchen cafe lined with sleek glass cases and curvaceous marble counters. Morning munchies include egged options like bacon- and onion-studded quiche Lorraine, and Basque-style tortillas w/ confit potatoes & roasted red peppers, plus pastries aplenty, from berry 'n almond brioche slices to chocolate babkas, so don't let Jerry try to talk you into the cinnamon. Come lunchtime, you can cop bechamel-slathered Croque Monsieurs w/ Dijon, ham, and Gruyere; pickled veggies/house pate/Sriracha mayo banh mis; and pork rillette baguettes w/ cornichons, which is just another word for a tiny pickle, also what you're in when you and Warwick Davis find yourself confronted with a problem.
And because those Europeans are just endlessly eating dessert and getting all fat, feel free to pick up some seasonal raspberry/mango mousse, cherry-vanilla panna cotta, and salted caramel tarts, unless you swore those off after that one night in Paris.
