City Guide: Paris

La Grande Épicerie de Paris

This is the Disney World of supermarkets, a mecca for food lovers on a grand corner of the Left Bank.

A gourmet emporium adjacent to Paris’s chicest department store, The Bon Marché, and an extension of the store’s original food counter opened in 1923 offering teas, preserves and the like now is the epitome of an upscale supermarket. You will get lost in its aisles stocked with fantastic, quality produce, meats, cheeses, prepared food, and pastries along with a vast selection of international products. Chocolate aisles go on and on with cacao percentages reaching 99, a wine cellar to satisfy all price ranges and samples often appearing around the store. A good option too for take-out at times when you still want to eat well even if not dining out.
