Ma France at Arlington/Lexington line

Just walked by a specialty French food store at the Arlington/Lexington line on Mass Ave - lots of meats and cheeses, pastries (which were sold out at the time). They've only been open a week, and inventory is still sparse, but the owners were very friendly and if they have a direct line to French suppliers, might be a go-to place for certain ingredients. Hope they do well -that stretch of Mass Ave is pretty sparse..

      Big Congrats, chris. One of the best public libraries in the state. ahemmmm, excellent cookbook (and dvd) collection.

    2. There used to be a French gourment shop in Arlington Heights where La Posada is now. They didn't fare well...I went in a few times and liked the food and the people but they couldn't give their stuff away. I hope these folks have better luck.


        Sites a bit broken, but at least has address, hours, etc.

        1. wow, right across from Berman's (who also sell bread and cheees), where Cary's Fish used to be.
