It is in the heart of Bonnevoie that the owner of the place, driven by his love of gastronomy, opened the doors of La Petite Epicerie on 17 September. This delicatessen is only small in name because everything has been thought out to make you experience great convivial moments thanks to the careful selection of products !
La Petite Epicerie is a grocery and wine shop that offers a selection of French artisanal products combining good taste and good craftsmanship. To discover it, head to Bonnevoie,next to the latest tram extension (Lycée Technique stop), a dynamic district in full renaissance, ideal for this new address for lovers of good artisanal products!
From the outside, a luminous sign revealing the name of the place with its round and friendly lettering catches the eye. As soon as you walk through the door, you enter a colourful world of red and green tones. The products are beautifully presented on shelves of the String Furniture’s brand. We also note a concern to personalise this place with custom-made wooden furniture, all curved, and painted in red and green colours. This interior decoration was imagined and thought out with the Luxembourg designer Ruth Lorang, the curves allowing the customers to follow the wave and let themselves be carried away by their desires during their visit.
What can you taste at La Petite Epicerie?
To make his selection, the owner has established very precise specifications: artisanal products made in France by producers with values and a project, and of exceptional quality. But above all, with a clear final objective: to delight and surprise.
Epicureans will find a wide choice of products from breakfast to dinner. Lovers of aperitif products will not fail to find their happiness with the spreads. Let’s mention the spread from les Conservistes, the vegetable spread from Domaine Terra or the spread from Mare & Gustu, as well as the sea preserves from the Breton family cannery La Quiberonnaise. Two fridges built into the back of the shop offer a selection of fresh products, such as charcuterie and sausages from Corsica and cheese platters from the cheese shop “Le Coeur de Meule” in Mamer, ideal for sharing during a dinner party. We also like the selection of exceptional products for special occasions: truffles, Aquitaine caviar and other rare pearls.
In the sweet section of the shop you will not be left out with jams from the Maison Perrotte, Encuentro chocolate bars and chocolate confectionery from the Maison Pralus as well as creations from the craftsman Biomomo Hashimoto combining Japanese and French gastronomy (the spread pralines-matcha is to die for!). You will also find fruit juices and other original soft drinks as well as a selection of teas, infusions and coffees.
Finally, for gourmets who don’t have the time to cook but want to make or treat themselves to a good meal, you will find jars of great French specialities.
Don’t miss out on the cellar!
The visit doesn’t end on the ground floor, quite the contrary! Once you have made your choice in the grocery shop, go down the spiral staircase that takes you to the wine and spirits cellar. Here again, the owner’s attention to detail and beautiful presentation is evident, with a custom-made, curved black wooden cabinet to display and store the bottles.
As far as wine is concerned, the owner wanted to offer both renowned appellations and others that are less well known, coming from domains that are often confidential, but always appreciated by connoisseurs. Spirits lovers, you will find at La Petite Epicerie names of excellence, both traditional and more innovative: calvados, cognac, whisky, rum, armagnac, gin, vodka, eaux de vie… as you will have understood, the choice is wide.
Whether you want to spoil your guests at a dinner party, treat yourself or find original gourmet gifts, La Petite Epicerie is the new gastronomic address to discover. It has all the makings of a great place!
