After ve years of renovation works, the Café de l’Homme, almost simultaneously with the Musée de l’Homme, re-opens in the Palais de Chaillot. In this 500 sqm space with its view over the Eiffel Tower, the visitor discovers the new decor by Gilles&Boissier who opted for a choice of precious materials and completely made-to-measure furnishings to evoke Man and his evolution. This contemporary and elegant brasserie is anchored in an architectural, cultural and culinary heritage. It proffers new experiences thanks to the gastronomic menu proposed by Frédéric Vardon, master chef of 39V. The café will receive Chefs in residence from the ve continents for the duration of a season.
After rennovating Bon and launching Ma Cocotte, Fabienne and Philippe Amzalak have moved to Beaugrenelle to open Eclectic, a restau- rant designed by Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio.
