Apt in 16e - grocery stores nearby?
We finally found our apartment in Paris! It's a gorgeous 3 bedroom off Victor Hugo near the Place Etoile. The actual address is 1 Rue Traktir - Paris 75016. We found it on

So here's my question: we will be cooking quite a bit & I'm wondering if there's a market or grocery store within VERY close walking distance. I don't want to walk too far carrying all those groceries!

Also, can you recommend any restaurants in reasonably close walking distance?

Thank You!

Monoprix on the Champs Elysees (or is it a Prisunic) - anyway there is one or the other a few blocks down from Etoile.

Monoprix is great, you will find everything you need, I brought home laundry soap lol...I like the scent.
Have a great time!

So, the Monoprix on the Champs.. you think it's close enough to walk home with groceries for myself & 4 hungry guys? I'm crossing my fingers that it will be!! Or maybe I'll be a lazy american & hire a cab for the ride home!

Scarlett- I know exactly how you feel.. I come home from every trip & want to totally redo my house!

LOL, and I wonder if you get that Husbandly Rolling Eyes look :D
I also try to duplicate dishes that we have in Paris, anything to prolong the experience ~

Actually many of these supermarkets offer delivery for a slight charge.
