ICIAR, which started out as a pop-up deli in 2021, selling curated wooden cheese boxes and French delights, has amassed legions of fans (including the French Ambassador to Ireland) and has now added a Parisian style café for its customers to enjoy.
Inspired by Parisian cafés, Julien, who now calls Dublin his home, hopes locals will enjoy lingering over a glass of fine French wine while grazing on cheese and charcuterie as they watch the world go by.
On cold winter days, a plate of melting Raclette or roasted garlic camembert might be more tempting with a warming glass of Vin Chaud. Gourmet coffee, fresh French croissants and patisseries by Arty Baker are also on the menu, as are daily salad and soup specials – all with a cheesy French twist.
ICIAR French Cheese Bar also offers customers take-away curated cheese platters and boxes, sourced from France’s best producers, and presented in beautiful boxes, that are always a showstopper at any dinner table.
