Have you ever walked into a super market and completely forgot you came looking for vegetables and fruits? Well, if you haven’t, Lafayette Gourmet is definitely a unique experience for you! I had the chance to enjoy this exquisite upscale marketplace with my MBA Gastronomy class. When you first walk in, security checks your bags and then, you are allowed to roam around in paradise like a kid in a candy store. It takes every fiber of strength not to buy one thing from every counter. I mean, I really felt like I was in Saks, but all the luxury perfume, fashion, and jewelry were replaced by luxury brands of macaroons, pastries, gourmet chocolate, ready-to-go meals, deli, wine, spices, and seafood! It was truly amazing.
If you’re in Paris, make sure to check it out. It’s near Galleries Lafayette.
35 bd Haussmann
