Tucked away in a cul-de-sac in the 9th arrondissement, you’ll find Sylvain Grundlinger’s very secret stockpile of gourmet provisions. Expect a no-bullshit attitude, just a solid supply of culinary treasures: crates everywhere you look, boxes and shelves filled with sublime finds sourced by our favorite wholesaler who advocates for good, healthy and eco-friendly eats! On display the afternoon we visited: porcini (€34/kg), chanterelle (€28/kg), and black trumpet mushrooms (€22/kg), intriguing and very sweet hardy kiwis (€5/250g), a bounty of Sicilian satsuma mandarins (€6/kg) and finger limes (€5 for two). And on the shelves: a legendary apple-pear balsamic vinegar from La Maison Le Paulmier (€15 for 350 ml), late-harvest maple syrup from Escuminac (€12.90 for 200 ml), hazelnut and sweet clover spread (€12 for 200 g), crafted in collaboration with Tookies Gambetta. On Fridays, when the tide allows, fisherwoman Emmanuelle Marie’s truck rolls up (La Petite Laura) and parks outside the shop, providing fresh seafood and an ocean breeze! // J.P.

Hidden gem: The incredible vinegar reduction aged in a smoky barrel from La Pommée (€35 for a 350-ml bottle).
