In 1923 Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche opened an ultra-refined gourmet food emporium on its ground floor. Today the store is located in an adjacent building at the corner of the historic location on rue de Sèvres. A must address for fine foods lovers in the French capital spanning 2,900 square meters of floorspace, La Grande Épicerie de Paris offers some 30,000 items, many of them available exclusively at the store or made on site.
After 18 months of building work and the creation of the wine cellar in the shop’s basement, the ‘Le Balthazar’ wine bar and the ‘La Table’ restaurant, directly connected to the Bon Marché’s Menswear department, the new Grande Épicerie is more dedicated than ever to being an unmissable destination for all food lovers.
” The new Grande Épicerie de Paris, opened in 2013, is the most ambitious food hall concept in Europe. We wanted to offer our clients a unique gastronomic experience. The savoir-faire of our artisans, our architects and the artists chosen for this project allowed us to turn this desire to become a unmissable gastronomic destination into a reality.”
Patrice Wagner, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of the Le Bon Marché Group
