Looking for an authentic taste of Italy? Head to Honorati, where Adèle and Andrea Aversa import their passion for all things Italian via a panoply of carefully chosen produtti! In their village épicerie just a stone’s throw from the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont (a pale green façade on the corner of Rue Armand Carrel, bright yellow furniture on the terrace, goods displayed in shelves crafted from wine crates), almost everything comes from Puglia: olive oil pressed at Andrea’s family farm, buffalo mozzarella from Sabino Francesco in Venosa, the freshest pesto imaginable, tender foccaccia, crisp pistachio biscotti, vini naturali… And right when you’re about to start singing the Ave Maria, the duetto unveils their take-away dishes and freshly baked pucce, those round buns stuffed with delizie! // Wanda Wagner
The hidden gem: The fichi maritati (€9.50), which is impossible to find elsewhere! It’s roasted figs stuffed with toasted almonds, electrified by fennel and lemon, which come directly from the best masseria in Puglia, Fragnite.
