Since 1 April, the pop-up stores in the Nice Côte d’Azur terminals have been renewed, with 5 new food chains moving in. On the menu: products from Monaco, Japanese flavours and fine chocolates to enjoy on-site or during your flight.
The pop-up stores at France’s second largest airport platform are entering their seventh season, having already brought travellers around fifty chains, which have benefited from exposure to the millions of visitors passing through the terminals.
Following a tender process, five chains have been selected for the next twelve months, to fulfil the airport’s promise to give travellers the most remarkable commercial experience of any European airport. The newly renovated terminals offer the chains prime locations to promote their culinary expertise. They are distributed between the public areas and the passenger-only zones in the boarding area.
In Terminal 1 – Arrivals area
Ramen Ta Faim is the place to sample original châshû ramen, but also takoyaki (an octopus-based speciality), delicious gyoza dumplings, or the famous yakisoba noodles. The chain offers healthy, tasty “home cooking”, with plenty on offer for vegetarians or gluten-intolerant customers, all amidst Japanese décor with manga tones on the walls and a pretty cherry blossom tree on the terrace.
In Terminal 1 – Schengen boarding area
Beefbar Deli is known to discerning carnivores around the world, who come to feast on pizzas, focaccia, chic snacks, truffle fries, or even a selection of fine beef charcuterie, for example Kobe rillettes. The perfect place for some indulgent yet different food, surrounded by delightful décor.
In Terminal 2 – Departures area
Fly Me To The Food is more than just a clever name. They’ve also had the great idea of offering a box of food to eat on-site or in-flight! Varied recipes, including vegetarian options, as well as a large selection of 100% organic snacks. Or
der in store or before you get to the terminals using your smartphone. The offer is perfect for discerning travellers… or simply busy ones.
Lobsta is the lobster roll specialist: these delicious creations are made of toasted and buttered artisan bread, filled with lobster flesh and seasoned to your taste! They also offer prawn and salmon versions, to be enjoyed alone or as part of a set menu. The mouthwatering menu also features a lobster salad, a Label Rouge Scottish salmon tartare, and for something sweet to finish, delicious home-made desserts.
At terminal 2 – Schengen area
Marcolini, founded by the winner of the 1995 World Pastry Cup and the 2000 European Pastry Cup, will delight chocoholics with assortments you’ll struggle to keep in your suitcase as a gift, without giving in to temptation and eating them right away.
“This new selection of pop-up stores embodies our openness to the world, with flavours coming from Japan, Belgium, the northern seas and Italy. It serves our ambition to give passengers the most remarkable commercial offer in a European airport, as well as our promise to become a prime stopover for self-connecting passengers, with Nice Connect”, states Filip Soete, Director of the Commercial BU of Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur.
