Art Meets Food at Nomiya Restaurant Above Paris

Fancy dining above Paris in a floating restaurant for just twelve people?

Nomiya is a temporary installation sitting on the roof of Palais de Tokyo. Designed by artist Laurent Grasso, the intimate restaurant with a glass cabin offers panoramic views over the Seine and the Eiffel Tower.

Art Home (pronounced arôme) is a collaboration project between Electrolux and Palais de Tokyo with Nomiya as its highlight. The structure’s combination of glass, steel and purple neon lighting brings together modern architecture and cuisine. Twelve diners at a time can enjoy chef Gilles Stassart’s gastronomic creations with a contemporary menu that changes daily.

Reservations are essential and can be made one month in advance. Lunch costs 80 euros per person and includes a three course meal with a glass of Champagne. Dinner at 100 euros comes with a night view of the Eiffel Tower shimmying with golden lights.

You can also attend workshops where you can hone in your culinary skills with Gilles Stassart or one of his team at the helm. Or you can take a tour of Art Home’s unique space which begins in the gardens and works its way up to the dining room.

If you’re planning on visiting Paris soon, you have until June 2011 to try and secure a booking before the temporary restaurant is removed.

    How fabulous!! Love quirky, lovely things like this. Just wish they weren’t so transient so more of us could enjoy them. :-)

      I guess that’s part of their charm. If they were permanent fixtures, they would lose some of that urgency to go there :)

    Sounds fantastic – think I would go for the view alone! Will have to save my Euros & book a quick TGV ride before it disappears :) How decadently fun!
