Marylebone Village: a hint of Paris in the heart of London

Marylebone Village, London © Ludovic Bischoff

In the elegant streets of Marylebone Village, discover all of France’s luxury brands and prêt-a-porté fashion houses! You have to wonder whether or not a bit of Paris has been transported to the heart of London…especially as the area also plays host to the best food stores in the city. Face-to-face on Moxon Street, for example, are La Fromagerie and Rococo Chocolate. Here are two unmistakably Frenchie cuisines…with an English twist! Chantal Coady is a devoted fan of major French chocolatiers, constantly innovating and breaking boundaries to produce chocolates that only English impertinence could invent. In her little boudoir boutique, take a moment to marvel at the beautiful geometric wrappers. Before tucking into a white chocolate and cardamom, taste milk chocolate and sea salt or this dark outside filled with passion fruit and caramel…created from rare cocoa from the four corners of the globe. Receiving a shower of desereved recognition for her creations, Chantal Coady never fails to surprise chocaholics…
Over the road, La Fromagerie is the brainchild of another passionate woman, Patricia Michelson. Deemed the ‘Queen of Cheese’ in London, this expert is another Francophile, travelling the world and unearthing the most sumptuous pressed cheeses and selections of goat’s cheese. The result: 250 recommendations housed in a refrigerated room unique to London. And her excellent boutique bursts with delicious products (dried meats, vegetables, jams, wines…) where shoppers can taste a board of cheeses picked from the label’s special supply. The perfect way to rediscover old cheeses and other English stiltons!
