Help me find that truffle shop

A couple of years ago we bought some very good black truffles at a shop just to the north of les halles, which specialized in all kinds of lux foods (foie, caviar, etc.). The quality was good and the price fair. The only catch is I don't remember the name.

Any ideas, or other suggestions?

  1. My guess would be Foie Gras Deluxe at 26, rue Montmartre.

    1. There are two stores.

      Foie Gras Luxe on 26 rue Montmartre, small store and a larger store in the courtyard, they have truffles and foie gras, they also have goose foie gras which is becoming less common. Until recently they had no front store, only the inside courtyard counter, and you really had to know they were there. Good quality in general.

      And Comptoir de la Gastronomie which sells all sorts of luxury foods, including truffles in season, and doubles as a restaurant and wine cellar. 34 rue Montmartre.
