Rue des Lévis
A pedestrian way where the gastronomic vendors spill into the street.
A chef's dream of a street, lined with shops specialized by product type in the great French tradition: you'll find fruit and vegetable stands, the cheese and fish mongers, butchers and bakers, and all offer excellent quality ingredients. An ambiance of the "real" Paris permeates this tightly-knit group of vendors who sing the praises of whatever bounty is at peak--a peach, oysters, a spring cheese...everything ripe for the tasting. A real feast for the eyes. Tip: If you wander further from the main drag, you will discover a few finds of your own. There's also non-food shops, but who's interested in that?
