To Brie or not to Brie, that is the question.
If your answer is oui, you’ll want to shop Paris Grocery. From the owners of The Spanish Table comes a quaint new store stocked with European culinary delights.
Fill your cupboards with French jams, olives, herbs de Provence, oils, vinegars, and mustards. Then raid a freezer fit for bon vivants with gourmet blood sausages, escargot, croissants, and pastry shells. Rillettes, confits, patés, and sliced duck breast from the deli are all a baguette needs.
Picnic wines — affordable bottles priced under $30 — and ciders sit in twin stacks. Coolers topped with fleurs-de-lis offer chilled lemonades, sparkling waters, white wines, and rosés.
From the fromage counter, choose a French or Basque cheese to pair with your grape.
This really is as Gouda as it gets.
