Clearly born in the right Epoq, Anthony Orjollet is giving a new jolt of energy to his terroir-ist quest. In his fine foods shop opened during the Covid lockdowns, with two hefty wooden countertops illuminated by golden light fixtures, you’ll find nothing but homemade goods (seaweed gomasio, kombucha that’s fermented in house, pistachio granola, etc.) and well-made products sourced directly from regional producers: an indecently good piment-d’Espelette-spiced pâté from Éric Ospital (€6.50 for 180g), wildflower honey collected in the Landes department (€10 a jar), delicious Spanish sardines packed in oil (€3.50 a tin), or even Hungry Belly cookies delivered fresh each morning (€2.50 a piece). And what about wine? There’s plenty to sip on, ranging in price from €15 to €35 a bottle (Costadila, Matassa, Descombes, etc.), which you can open up in house (for a corkage fee), alongside some stellar small plates. // Linda Manca

Hidden gem: The cashew salt, a mixture of salt and cashew powder, sesame seeds, turmeric, cumin and other spices, to add a little taste of Epoq to your homecooking (€8 for 140g).
