“Gigantic, unbelievable, incredible”. Compliments burst out during the opening night of La Felicità. We must say that Tigrane Seydoux and Victory Lugger’s – alias Big Mamma – new address has everything to impress people.
Set in Paris 13th arrondissement, in Station F Halle Freyssinet, Xavier Niel’s 2017-open startup incubator, La Felicità is a restaurant and an Italian food-market that is simply immoderate. Figures speak for themselves: 4,5000-sqm, a beautiful 1000-sqm sunny terrace, 3 bars serving aplenty spritz and not less than 5 kitchens. We’ve never seen this in Paris or even in France!
On the menu, we enjoy culinary specialties made in Italy (but not only…), that are 100% homemade and cooked on the spot and 100% fresh:
Le Panificio, the bakery corner of La Felicità offers focaccia you can have with mozzarella, very creamy burrata, basil and meat. At Sexy Burger, we enjoy delicious and super cheesy burgers coming straight from Au Cheval in Chicago and refreshing chilled desserts.
At La Caffetteria, open 24h a day, olives, focaccias, Italian breads, parmigiano and country ham make gourmet people happy. At La Trattoria, we run for the risotto and the delicious truffle pasta, homemade and made with love.
And outside, the smell of pizza calls our name. cooked in a huge wood-fire oven before our drooling eyes, these Neapolitan pizzas – now irresistible – come out perfectly golden and full of cheese, mozzarella and basil. What a treat.
Inside as well as outside, huge banquet-like tables are laid to welcome everyone. All in all, over 1000 seats! The perfect layout to get to know your table neighbors, and perhaps nabbing something from their plates, just to taste it! Two huge former wagons set in the hall promise to welcome clients for dinner.
In terms of parties, because it’s also the aim of La Felicità, concerts and DJ sets are expected all year long, so that you can reconcile good food and good music. And speaking of culture, exhibitions, street-art, festivals, movie screenings on big screen as well as the World Cup are planned!
Open 7 days a week, La Felicità is said – and we can bet on it – to follow the same successful path as its 6 siblings – East Mamma, Ober Mamma, Mamma Primi, Biglove Caffè, Pizzeria Popolare and Pink Mamma!
