Nomiya on top of Palais de Tokyo




Here is where culinary experience meets art. It’s ironic this slick cube takes the name of tiny no nonsense drinking holes in Japan. I’d be there in a heartbeat if I lived in Europe. Artist Laurent Grasso created this glass cubey restaurant installation with his architect brother, Pascal Grasso on the roof spot, previously home to Hotel Everland.

With magnificent views of the Tour Eiffel in the background and a kitchen helmed by Gilles Stassart, former manager of the Transversal au Mac/Val, I suppose this is probably on the ‘where to eat before you die’ list. Which doesn’t leave much time since it’s only there till June 30, 2010.

Well, I’m biased, I’ve always loved visiting Palais de Tokyo and this installation makes it all the more enticing.
