I have decided to forego restaurants for my trip to Paris (in May) and will be focussing instead on buying local produce to eat at the apartment and on picnics.
Can any of you lovely Hounds point me in the direction of Parisien 'traiteurs of note'? Either market stalls or shops. I'll be shopping on a Monday and Tuesday, plus Wednesday early morning for food to take home to the UK on the train. I'll also be there Sunday afternoon, but I imagine everything will be closed except a few Kosher places in the Marais?
I am particularly interested in cheese based tarts and seafood - though I do adore a well made oeuf en gelée too (yes, I know they contain gelatin). I will have access to a microwave only, so ideally any spécialitiés de la maison must be ready to eat and suitable for eating at ambient temperatures.
I will be staying in the 3rd arr (in May), but my shopping could take me anywhere in the pursuit of savoury goodness. (I have minimal interest in sweet foods).
