Who was that masked man



Home deliveries / Livraisons à domicile

Pizza isn't the only show in town when it comes to ready-to-indulge home food delivery in Paris. Who wants to rattle pots and pans day after day when you can answer the door to a pair of smiling eyes blinking above a mask, leaving you to return to that still-warm couch to catch up on the latest coronavirus developments? Here, (besides Boulangerie Poilâne), three more favorite places we'd frequent before the lockdown that I was delighted to find had stepped up to the plate, so to speak. BPJ

La Maison Plisson (above) is keeping two of its shops open during the crise as well as offering products for sale online: fruit, prime ribs and meats, vegetables, baguettes, cheeses, Bordier butter, tasty spreads, seafood, organic eggs, granolas, organic champagne (!), alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Flyin' Circus a new delivery service run by the popular Circus Bakery is taking orders for their superb sourdough bread, banana bread, and apple pie. The infamous cinnamon knots are also available, and they will deliver to every Paris arrondissement except the 12th and 13th. They make their own deliveries on bicycles, and orders placed before 4 p.m. will be (safely) dropped at your threshold the same day.

 


Eataly, the mega mercato in this Italian food hall in the Marais district, offers pre-packed baskets as well as baskets to order - wines and cheeses, fruits and vegetables; spaghetti, pasta, and brunch boxes, even a "family kit." Individual products such as charcuterie, olive oil, panettone, Moscato and a selection of taralli can be delivered within Paris starting at 8.50€ with a 50€ minimum.

A new crop of web video platforms is being used as never before to meet up en groupe for tea, coffee, or an apéro, a fun way to stay connected with friends and family scattered all over the world.
