Les galeries Lafayette. The mecca of Parisian couture. I’ll never forget the first time I walked into les galeries Lafayette. Just a little girl, I was mesmerized by the iconic glass dome.
When I lived in Paris, I would often wander over to les galeries Lafayette just to gaze at the beautiful window displays. Oftentimes, my man and I would duck over to Lafayette Gourmet for a glass of champagne and a quick bite.
Though Gourmand Lafayette isn’t nearly as grandiose as the main hall, the food selection is quite vast. With a wide array of specialty French products, the store also offers some harder-to-find ingredients. Despite the brand’s reputation, Gourmand Lafayette is surprisingly affordable. There are quite a few lunch spots and bars located throughout the store. Beware – the lunchtime rush and limited seating can make it tricky to enjoy!
