Le traiteur


In Paris, the neighborhood traiteur - translated into English as "caterer" and similar to a deli but not quite the same concept - along with supermarkets, boulangeries, and butcher shops, is remaining open during the now prolonged confinement. Purveyors of prepared dishes to take away that date to the middle ages when homes lacked kitchens, French traiteurs are frequented mostly by a discerning elderly clientèle and feature delicacies from entrées to desserts, making them an overlooked - and welcome - meal alternative. A google "search nearby" around an address should reveal where they've been hiding themselves - but be sure and call first to make sure they're open. BPJ
