Historical and rival, the two most famous luxury grocery shops are both located place de la Madeleine.
So close to the Pinacothèque that Soutine exhibition posters are reflected in its windows, Fauchon is a pink world.
Symmetrically, on the square’s other side, it’s already Christmas at the bright red Hediard shop and restaurant.
What a terrible dilemma : having caviar at Hédiard?
Or having caviar at Fauchon?
Unless you’d rather window shop or buy great mustard and pickles at Maille.
