Welcome to Bé and Cé’s dapper épicerie (a lemon-yellow façade, black and white tile floors, a ceramic credenza), where Bénédicte Gambarisio and Célia Marulli are bringing a taste of Italy to the 11th arrondissement of Paris. A few of their imports: beautiful cheeses (buffalo ricotta, Tuscan pecorino, truffled moliterno from Sardinia); tantalizing salami; organic wines served straight from the wine cask, just like at a traditional Italian taverna. Want more? There are giant jars of mouthwatering olives, plus pasta and sauces galore, cute cannoli fatti a mano and Sicilian olive oil as well. And as a bonus? Cé’s dad, a caterer in Seine-et-Marne (called Carte sur Table), brings his ready-to-devour specialties every morning: lasagna, caponata, polpette… // Albert Gredinbar 

The hidden gem: Homemade tiramisu that’s neither too sweet and nor too espresso-heavy (€4).
