At the gates of Paris, the new life of the Halles d'Issy-les-Moulineaux
Published on 1 December 2022 in Flavors and Gastronomy
The Basque group Biltoki has carried out a magnificent project by giving new life to the Halles Eiffel d’Issy-les-Moulineaux, a covered market situated at the gates of Paris. Treat yourself to a pleasant stroll along the banks of the Seine from the Platine Hotel to reach this new Parisian market, which is both a food hall and a food court where regulars from the neighbourhood meet, and nearby workers, foodies and casual visitors can enjoy a bite to eat…
The spirit of the place
These magnificent halls designed by Gustave Eiffel bear his trademark characteristic and aesthetically pleasing metal structure. Originally designed to accommodate a light bulb factory, they successively housed various industrial activities. Only in 2015 did they undergo the renovations that in November 2022 turned them into a gourmet-friendly foodie hub. Turned into a modern yet traditional market by the Biltoki group, the Halles Eiffel d’Issy-les-Moulineaux provides a pleasant environment in which some twenty carefully chosen artisans and merchants offer their gourmet products.
A gourmet’s delight
Thanks to the diverse selection of artisans and traders, the Halles Biltoki offer quality regional products. Fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, wines, cheeses... there’s everything you need to put together a shopping basket full of flavours. You can also sit in the food court to enjoy a coffee or a tasty snack of fresh produce from the surrounding stalls. What’s more, the Halles are open every day except Sunday and at night until 22:00. To do your shopping or to eat on the go in a village market atmosphere, the Halles d'Issy-les-Moulineaux is the hot new place to be.
During your stay at the Platine Hotel, treat yourself to a trip to the Halles Eiffel d’Issy-les-Moulineaux. While the typical 19thcentury architecture fascinates enthusiasts, the food stalls delight gourmets with their tasty offerings.
