An innovative approach to French haute cuisine, freely inspired by Mediterranean cooking and heightened with an uncompromising respect for ingredients. Tastes are well-defined, and the preparations are subtle and always amazing.
A Parisian oasis in the sky
On the rooftop of the Musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac,
Les Ombres gastronomy restaurant, designed by architect Jean Nouvel, opens onto a panoramic terrace, like a hanging garden of Mediterranean plants. The restaurant is wall-to-wall glass and offers an exceptional view of Paris and the Eiffel Tower. During the day, the legendary monument casts a shadow onto the tables with its metallic lace, while at night, its golden lights illuminate the dining area.
During the evening, the ceiling at Les Ombres transforms into a starry sky every hour, addressing a glittering nod to its illustrious neighbour.
The cuisine of Les Ombres combines Mediterranean flavours , the creativity of contemporary French cuisine and Naturality techniques.
The exhibition looks back at Senegalese cultural policy and diplomacy in the aftermath of independence, its major achievements in the field of visual and performing arts, but also its limitations. Senghor’s thinking has not left the generations born after independence indifferent; it has been widely discussed, criticised and commented upon over successive re-readings.
