"Gigantic, mind-blowing, incredible". Compliments were pouring in at the opening night of La Felicità. The new address from Tigrane Seydoux and Victor Lugger, aka Big Mamma, is sure to impress.
Located in the 13th arrondissement, in the Halle Freyssinet of Station F, the start-up incubator opened in 2017 by Xavier Niel, La Felicità is a restaurant doubling as an Italian food-market that's simply out of this world. The figures speak for themselves: 4,500m2 of floor space, a beautiful 1,000m2 sunny terrace, 3 bars serving spritz at every turn, and no less than 5 kitchens. Never before seen in Paris, and never before seen in France!
The menu features culinary specialities made in Italy (but not only...), 100% homemade, 100% fresh:
Panificio, La Felicità's bakery corner, serves foccacia with a choice of mozzarella, creamy burrata, basil or meat. Sexy Burger offers delicious, cheesy burgers straight from Chicago's Au Cheval, and refreshing iced desserts.
At La Caffetteria, which is open 24 hours a day, olives, focaccia, Italian breads, parmigiano and country ham will delight gourmets. At La Trattoria, you'll love the risotto and succulent truffle pasta, homemade with love.
And outside, the smell of pizzas beckons. Baked in a huge wood-fired oven before our tantalizing eyes, these now-ubiquitous Neapolitan pizzas emerge perfectly browned and loaded with cheese, mozzarella and basil. A true delight.
Inside and out, huge banquet-style tables are set up to welcome everyone. In all, over 1,000 seats! The perfect setting for getting to know your table-mates, and why not steal a few things from their plates, just for a taste! As for the two huge old wagons in the hall, they promise to welcome customers for dinner.
On the festive side - and this is also the idea behind La Felicità- concerts and DJ sets are scheduled throughout the year, combining good food and good sound. And on the cultural front: exhibitions, street art, festivals, film screenings on the big screen and the World Cup are all on the agenda!
