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.

OIL DRUM: Cédric Casanova — part French and part Sicilian — produces 29 different kinds of olive oil, presented in growlers and made of the finest varieties, including green nocellara, biancolilla and cerasuola. (One oil is produced exclusively for the Hôtel Plaza Athénée.)

For the past two years, Parisians have been fighting to taste the elixirs around the sole table in Casanova’s gourmet store, La Tête dans les olives.

The tiny shop, with olive-green walls, slate boards and crates, also peddles dried eggplant and tomatoes, plus the salted capers Casanova produces, alongside pasta, anchovies and oregano.

In March, he opened a Sicilian-style gourmet grocery store, called Le Conservatoire, on the same street. It has one table, too, but primarily sells fresh fruit and vegetables as well as various imported produce.
