The Restaurant (and Cooking School) Above Paris

The Restaurant (and Cooking School) Above Paris

Location, location, location is the repetitive mantra of many a real estate agents. And the Palais de Tokyo has one of the best in Paris. Not only does is this museum of contemporary art located in the heart of the city, its rooftop boasts some of the best views from anywhere in the French capital.

Until May 2009 the roof of the Palais de Tokyo was the home to the Hotel Everland. Spot Cool Stuff regulars might remember our review of the Everland, the improbable, portable, pod-like hotel that was as well traveled as some of its guests.

When the Hotel Everland moved away from its museum perch it seemed only a matter of time until another tenant moved in. That time has come. Today a hip and cool restaurant—the Art Home—sits atop the Palais de Tokyo.

art home restaurant s1 The Restaurant (and Cooking School) Above Paris follow me on pinterest button The Restaurant (and Cooking School) Above Paris Art Home is about the size and shape of a shipping container with walls made almost entirely of glass. There’s not a bad table in the house because, well, there’s only one table—long and rectangular with space for 12 diners.

The restaurant has two sittings for lunch and one for dinner six days a week. (They’re closed on Monday). Dinner spaces tend to be booked well in advance but lunch seats are relatively available. Eat at the Art Home and you’ll discover that the views aren’t the restaurant’s only superlative feature. Lunch consists of three scrumptious gourmet courses, with your choice of wine or champagne, all for a reasonable €60. Reservations can be made through the Art Home website.

Unable to eat at the Art Home? The restaurant offers later afternoon tours.

The really cool way to experience the Art Home, though, is to take a cooking workshop there. Hands-on courses on the techniques of French cuisine are offered in adult-only and kid-friendly versions. When you’re chopping your vegetables just make sure you are looking down at what you are doing and not out the windows at the Eiffel Tower view.

    the purple cast in the restaurant enhances its futuristic aspect…though i can imagine my food would all look purple and i wonder how that might make me feel about eating it :)
