Marie-Laure Radojewski set her sights on the space next to her chef husband’s restaurant, Ravigote, and turned it into a multifaceted adjoining spot: it’s a fine foods shop featuring a refrigerated bar filled with take-away delicacies (Comté from the B.O.F. de la Martinière cheese mongers, nitrite-free charcuterie from the Ferme de Clavisy…) and a tapas joint during the day – gravlax of trout from the Vercors with thick cream and verbena oil; leeks in vinaigrette with gouda… And best of all, she also sells freshly made sandwiches made using homemade navette au lait (a type of brioche bun). The fillings of the day included: sliced garlicky roast beef with sauce ravigote and beetroot ketchup, or tender cubes of roasted squash with wild garlic pesto, slivers of Parmesan and a seed crumble. Hot tip: try the desserts (really good rice pudding and crème caramel), the take-away snacks (like the pain au lait brioche stuffed with a Valrhona chocolate bar) and good OBCR coffee. // A.S.
