Accessible from a discret entrance, at one of the corners of the giant Italie 2 shopping center, ICONIK remains visible from outside thanks to its extravagant and pop graphical trim. Recently inaugurated on January 13rd 2022, make sure to book an evening, or more, to visit this unmissable spot, designed by L35 Architects. This fun food hall is one of the upcoming boosters of Italik, this extension of Italie 2, which was one of the winning projects of the Réinventer Paris call for projects (launched in 2014 by the Parisian municipality), which tends to combine commercial and cultural, catering and leisure activities on a generous surface of 6,400m2 (photo credits: Albin Durand/ICONIK).
This certain discretion was wished by its project initiators, who aimed to make this new address, dedicated to urban gastronomy, a real trendy place of destination, in the heart of 13th district of Paris. Once inside of this hybrid food court, reuniting an endless warm and welcoming bar counter and four food kiosks, you could easily feel a festive, transgenerational, delicious and colorful atmosphere.
On the other hand, proposing a selection of sweet “ready-to-drink“ homemade classic and signature cocktails, named with funny patronyms such as Jack Sparose, Lara Soft and Cuncumba. Otherwise, try their numerous Parisian editions from Gallia beers plus a selection of Les Assembleurs wines from the Côtes du Rhône appellation. This cocktail bar would be running all day long and even until late at night, eventually extended by a journey on the another marble antenna, sitting on the outdoor terrace.
In addition, let’s get into the 4 select food kiosks which would serve you an attractive range of urban and fusion cuisine. Among them, why don’t you adopt the Asian baos (as nature, taro or matcha flavored burgers) and gyozas proposed by Little BaoBei? Otherwise, you’re more into the Japanese-inspired handrolls and donburis imagined by Kantine, employing some of the Kumo products.
In another category, the Italian delights are also represented with the original pizzas elaborated by Magnà and its chef, the former worldwide pizzaiolo champion, in the person of Julien Serri. We could remember here his fabulous creations including truffle and pistachio cream versions. Without forgetting, the street-style maritime kiosk of Père & Fish, proposing a selection of homemade revisited fish and chips savors, employing fine Scottish salmon.
At last, we couldn’t pass through the kinky pastries initiated by the team of La Quequetterie… There, a selection of oversized and colorful male and female sexual organs to appreciate in fritter texture, garnished with Nutella or rainbow covered with white chocolate, just to mention a few variants…
To benefit as much as possible atmosphere of this pop-culture atmosphere, the ICONIK team pays many efforts to prepare you a special non-stop program in order to have fun all week long!
Therefore, you could be entertained with thematic partys (with 80s, 90s, 00s music), private concerts and shows, random karaoke, quiz, and blind-test nights, but also lotto-bingos, vintage markets, kids workshops, and even retro video games… (photo credits: Alex Plato).
Then, let’s keep updated about those cool with continuous surprises on their official website.
