La Maison Plisson, Paris

France's finest producers are showcased at La Maison Plisson.

Man cannot live on Poilâne sourdough alone and now Parisians won't need to with the opening of the French capital's newest food emporium, La Maison Plisson. Located on Boulevard Beaumarchais, this two-story épicerie and restaurant was crowned a Right Bank establishment before its doors even opened recently, such was the hype surrounding its launch.

Founder Delphine Plisson, formerly head of marketing at French fashion brands Maje and Sandro, enlisted French chefs Bruno Doucet and the father of French bistronomy, Yves Camdeborde (of Saint Germain's Le Comptoir du Relais), as consultants to help her select and stock her shelves with the finest French food producers, be it olive oil, fruit-filled confitures, sardines, chocolates or an impressive wine selection. Then there's the cheese: creamy rounds of Saint-Félicien, hunks of Roquefort and slabs of Reblochon, the deli with its array of saucisson, duck terrine and more, and a fresh fruit and vegetable market.

(In summer, look out for the ephemeral and sticky-sweet fraise des bois.)

Adjacent to this luxe grocery store is a 60-seat restaurant with a sprawling terrace. Fresh savoury tarts and sandwiches are on the menu, as well as a traditional dish of the day - free-range chicken and pea meatballs, say, served on bulgur with jus de viande and dill.

Most remarkably, La Maison Plisson is open seven days a week - a common convenience in Australia, but an anomaly in the French capital.

La Maison Plisson, 93 Blvd Beaumarchais, Paris
