What Gaul! Paris Grocery Opens Quietly on the Pike Hill Climb

The folks behind Spanish Table offer up picnic wines and an elegant array of fromages de France.

From the good people who brought us The Spanish Table, Paris Grocery (1418 Western Ave), a new little grocery with a French mood, has moved in next door to the Iberian emporium on the Pike Hill Climb. No frills signage announces the name of the store offhandedly, as if the owners are confident that word of mouth gushing will suffice.

And we know it will: there are Macrina baked goods, lovely French picnic wines under $30, and most importantly—for us, anyway—there is cheese. French cheese. Basque sheep’s milk cheeses like Le Bleu and Kaikou, and the delicately textured Tome Corse de Chevre, a goat cheese from Corsica. Like the Spanish Table, Paris Grocery also stocks items you thought you could only get in Europe: saffron fettuccine, Badoit sparkling water, and 10 cent coffee candies. Bon appétit and so forth.
