La Bovida

11 of 13

The Montorgueil area is food central, with endless rows of shops filled with fresh fish, vegetables, and just-baked bread. Among the better-known emporiums, this 90-year-old, three-story superstore is uniquely friendly, with a spread of items including heavy-duty appliances, Porsche’s Chroma Type 301 cutlery, chef’s toques and clogs, plastic lobsters (why not?), and magnificent Mauviel copper cookware. 36 Rue Montmartre, First Arr.; 33-1/42-36-09-99. —Alexandra Marshall
