At L’Epicerie you’ll find imports of the finest fleur de sel and oils lining one wall. Fresh baking and cheerful “Bonjours!” fill the air.

Boring sandwiches take on a gourmet flair as owner Dominique Moussu (the former chef of Teatro) makes them to order on fresh baguettes.

A standout treat is the duck rillettes sandwich ($10), made with chopped dark meat and cooked in fat til tender. Moussu generously spreads that on baguette with tart cornichons, grainy mustard and sweet butter lettuce. An enormous sausage roll ($8) is wrapped in impossibly buttery, flaky puff pastry for a lunch unto itself. Treat yourself to a meringue-based macaron ($2 each) or a fresh baked French apple tart ($5).

There’s seating for about six people in the deli, but L’Epicerie takes advance orders and delivers lunch baskets to downtown offices.
