Gourmet food in Paris

Some of the best food shopping is concentrated on place de la Madeleine, in the 8eme, home to Fauchon (no. 26; www.fauchon.com) Paris's homage to the finest edibles money can buy—though it faces serious competition from neighbor Hediard (no. 21; www.hediard.fr).

Don't forget your Paris outlet for caviar, truffles, foie gras, and other pâtés: Maison de la Truffe (no. 19; www.maison-de-la-truffe.com).

Nearby at 225 rue du Faubourg St-Honoré, La Maison du Chocolat (www.lamaisonduchocolat.com) sells confections as rich as its prices.
