Creative young restaurateurs, bold, modern cuisine, deliciously retro décor … welcome to Iconik, the new hotspot for street-food in the heart of Paris, near the Place d’Italie!
From Asian burgers at Little BaoBei to Père & Fish’s street-food take on fish, recipes by Magnà and its chef Julien Serri Julien Serri and Kantine’s Japanese-inspired rolls, you’ll find the best of urban cuisine at the various stalls. All of it made with quality products, to be enjoyed, mixed and shared, keeping you tuned in to the latest, coolest trends.
The food market
Little Baobei: This young institution in Paris’s 9th arrondissement is coming to ICONIK with its delicious home-made recipes, combining the tradition of the best Asian dishes with the modernity of the burger. Based on the famous Bao bread, a soft, round steamed bun, or the amazing noodle-based Ramen bread, they come in beef, chicken, fish and veggie versions. To be enjoyed with home-made fries, of course, sweet and sour popcorn or, for the more daring, with edamame, the soya beans that are so popular in China and Japan.
Père & Fish: The brainchild of a fishmonger’s son who is meticulous about the quality of the product, its fish is always ultra-fresh and sourced from sustainable fishing. Salmon and hake are available in burgers and also in fish and chip trays, in a breadcrumb coating flavoured with alcohol-free beer and ginger. The apérifish - tapas-style nibbles or starters - are not to be missed.
Magna: Julien Serri, French runner-up in gourmet pizza, has spent two years relentlessly scouring southern Italy for the best products. Magna offers a number of classic and original recipes, all of which are superb.
Kantine: Inspired by the new wave of Japanese street food, the talented Kantine team reinvents the great classics of the traditional diet of the Land of the Rising Sun to offer cuisine as simple and healthy as it is modern and creative.
Time for a drink
At any time of day, lemonade, iced tea, smoothies and milkshakes are all guaranteed to be home-made and prepared with love and skill.
For after-work drinks, the beers - in halves or pints - are always a safe bet. If your tastes are more traditional, a glass of wine, light or full-bodied but always from sustainable agriculture, will quench your thirst.
When evening comes and the festivities begin, it’s time for a selection of cocktails with names that are both evocative and fun.
A “pop” venue
With capacity for 300 people, this animated space with its friendly vibe, a lively bar all day, a terrace, and its modern, industrial-style immersive design, will soon have you hooked.
The venue aims to revisit a period from the 80s to the present day in both style and music, with a particular emphasis on the 90s. The disco balls and jukebox will take you down memory lane to the days of your childhood and youth. With rollerblades, skateboards and the inevitable vintage consoles, every detail sets the tone, like the fun ashtrays in the shape of ballot boxes and the colourful neon lights that illuminate the space. A visual journey somewhere between Back to the Future and Stranger Things!
