Whenever I’m in Paris I stop by J Detou. Self restraint is vital or you’ll end up having to buy an additional suitcase for the return flight home! Dried mushrooms, salt, pepper corns, chocolate nibs, Breton caramels, honey, Iranian pistachios, lentils du puy, etc, etc....More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
