The Passage Brady is a piece of India in the heart of Paris: spice scents, bright colors and traditional clothes… A moment out of time for those who linger there!
A little history! Located in the 10th arrondissement, when it was built in 1828, the Passage Brady linked the rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis to the rue du Faubourg Saint-Martin. It was then the longest covered street in Paris according to shop owner Mr Brady! But in 1852, with the transformations made by Prefect Haussmann, it was split up in two by the boulevard Strasbourg. Today, it is one of the covered passages to be listed as Historical Monument and nicknamed Little India.
The part from the rue Faubourg Saint-Denis to the boulevard de Strasbourg is covered by a beautiful glass roof. When Jules wanders there, he enjoys the colors of the spices: ginger, bananas, sweet potatoes and other strangely-shaped vegetables meet with perfumed rice, oriental essences, teas… We also find in these shops all the ingredients for exotic cooking! Jules also likes to have lunch or dinner in the numerous Indian and Pakistani restaurants of the passage… Pooja, la rose du Kashmir, Calcutta, la Coupe d’or… The food is typical and the setting incredible!
More festive, the second part of the passage, after the boulevard de Strasbourg is known for its costume boutiques!
Passage Brady :
From the 46 rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis to the 43 rue du Faubourg Saint-Martin.
Jules loves to eat! When he’s not at the restaurant, he has his favorite places to shop for products to delight his taste buds. The Julhès delicatessen on the lively rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis is one of them!
When entering Julhès, we’re under the impression of entering a vintage grocery store: exposed beams on the ceiling, wooden furniture, kitchen lights! Along the years, this delicatessen has become the place to shop for gastronomic food in the area. On the shop’s shelves and stalls, we find the Rolls of products for trendy cooking: incredible refined cheese, dreamy dairy products, a confusion of Italian meets, many oils to choose from, fresh pasta making your head spin, luxury cans, top sauces… in short, once you’re in this treasure trove, you just don’t know which way to look!
Then there’s the wonderful cellar that Jules loves so much (with restraint of course!). A stunning selection of wines and champagnes but that’s not all there is… Julhès also has an incredible spirituous cellar: at the back of the boutique, we can travel around the world thanks to Mexican tequila, Venezuelan rum, Irish whiskey…
Two numbers away on the same street, Jules also recommends the Julhès Boulangerie and Pastry shop: one of the best baguettes of the right bank!
