After culinary inventions such as cronut, dosant and duffin, have you heard of the rainbow bagels? Well actually it’s not really a new thing because this New York shop has been manufacturing them for… 20 years! One could almost believe its an invention of Willy Wonka. These multicolored bagels obviously take a lot longer to make than ordinary ones (100 rainbows in 5 hours instead of 1000 regular) but Scott Rossillo, Bagel Store‘s owner, is a real passionate and has made a good deal making them. So, how about a rainbow bagel with confetti cream cheese, anyone?

In the heart of the lively 10th arrondissement, the Bistro Paradis just opened its doors, run by the friendly Yoann Dinh. In the kitchen, the chef Alexandre Furtado, who worked among other with Ducasse in London or at the café Constant in Paris, treats us to amazing meals. His dishes are tinted with delicacy and exotic notes, reminiscence of his Brazilian origins, like this tender salmon with combava, ginger and lemongrass. We also revel in the beef ravioli of the day with their crunchy vegetables, or the roasted quail and its smooth gravy sauce. As for desserts, the seductive Belle -Hélène pear is completely regressive, just like the lemon pie with ginger caramel.
