“Monsieur Marcel Gourmet Market & Restaurants is a family-owned French-inspired restaurant, specialty food and giftware store with a thoughtfully-curated collection of the world’s finest gourmet foods, spices, wines, cheeses, charcuterie, chocolates and imported cuisine ingredients”.
What I love about this specialty grocery store is that you can pop in for a bite to eat yourself at their French Bistro before strolling the aisles of gourmet food. It’s a win-win.

Are you looking for cheese without the dairy? Bread without the wheat? Hummus without the chickpeas? Tortillas without the corn?
If you’re looking for any kind of food made of alternate ingredients, this is your place!
Also, they are available on Instacart and can deliver to Van Nuys!!

I found this gem of a spot years ago when staying downtown L.A. and I am placing it on my catering shopping list because you can 100% procure fabulous pastries and macarons to-go here for your guests.
More importantly, I would highly suggest everyone should also eat here too. The menu is creative, the plating uses colors and tastes that are unique and delicious, and eating at places like this will totally sharpen your own galley skillset.
