A hip little grocery shop and bar set up in 2014 in an up-and-coming area not far from the Place Saint-Marthe, La Fine Moustache offers ethical products sourced from small artisans and producers. The shelves are stacked with pretty packets of biscuits, jarred foods, drinks and elegant bottles of olive oil, making it a great place to pick up a classy dinner gift. There's a healthy selection of wines, champagnes and craft beers (BAL du Lubéron, for example), as well as Paris Cola and delicious gourmet juices by Alain Milliat. The deli section offers a selection of hand-cut cheese and cold meats from the Basque Country and the Ardèche region, and the grocery shop sells produce by big names (gherkins by the Maison Marc, sardines by Courtin) as well as foods by lesser known brands (foie gras by Beleslou, artisanal jam by Philippe Bruneton).
If looking through the shelves works up appetite, then tuck in to one of the homemade sandwiches: perhaps duck or tuna rillettes with gherkins on buttered bread (€4.50). Sit inside (or outside in the summer) and let the wine tasting flow.
