Fabrice Le Bourdat makes some of the most beautiful — and acclaimed — desserts, viennoiserie, and breads in Paris.
In Other Words
The New York Times (2015) “… a patisserie with a deceptively everyday look; it is run by Fabrice Le Bourdat, the former pastry chef at Le Bristol, the three-star Michelin restaurant that is now called Epicure. Along with my espresso, I had a kouign-amann, a caramelized cross between a palmier and a croissant that comes from Bretagne and has been positively compared with the Cronut. Blé Sucré’s decadent version costs just 1.76 euros.”
Le Figaro (2014) #1 madeleine in Paris
Bon Appetit (2012) “Fabrice Le Bourdat’s madeleines are the best in town, and I love that they’re glazed… Give his butter-and-caramel kouign-amann a try, too.”
Meg Zimbeck (2009) “Fabrice Le Bourdat, in his former life, was pastry chef at the three-Michelin-starred restaurant Le Bristol. He gave that up to open his own shop, and now rises every morning at 2 to make his famous millefeuille and iced madeleines for late morning customers… A cone of homemade salted butter caramel ice cream is a heavenly treat, particularly if it’s eaten in the tree-filled Square Trousseau across the street.”
Dorie Greenspan (2007) “About Blé Sucré and those madeleines: The patisserie…is worth a trip on its own.”
David Lebovitz (2007) “…prices at Blé Sucré are very reasonable but the quality is unquestionably high.”
Chocolate & Zucchini (2006) “Of particular note was the tablet of dark chocolate studded with crunchy flecks of salted caramel… and a set of four marvelously fresh madeleines.”
