Paris' Supply Stars

Chefs aren’t the only purveyors of go-to culinary destinations in Paris these days, as grocers, butchers and bakers have also earned a loyal following.

NEW DELI: Alexis Roux de Bézieux, who previously worked for accounting firm Arthur Andersen, has found a bright corner location in the buzzing Paris neighborhood SoPi (short for South of Pigalle) for his gourmet shop, Causses.

After penning the book “L’Arabe du coin” on the grocer’s essential role in daily life, Roux de Bézieux became one himself, taking inspiration from Brooklyn Fare in New York. His staff is young and hails from various disciplines, like acting.

Opened last fall, Causses is a slow-food enclave selling organic veggies and fruit in crates, spices in white jars — including herbes de Provence, plus fresh butter and cheese, such as petits suisses (of the thick, cylindrical cow-milk variety, among French children’s favorites). Also on offer is the popular Bigallet syrup.

“It is brilliant,” Roux de Bézieux marvels of the old-time label affixed to the syrups, which are selling like hot (organic) cakes.
