Situated atop the roof of Paris’ Palais de Tokyo contemporary art space lies a tiny little restaurant called Nomiya. This shipping container-esque space seats just 12, so for an intimate affair, this is the place to be. Designed in 2008, Nomiya was created in collaboration between Laurent and Pascal Grasso.
Imagine 12 strangers dining at one intimate table just above the Seine River, and chef Giles Stassart and his team whip up four & five course inventive, modern French meals. Though the Eiffel Tower is right in the sight line of the restaurant– there is a reflective panel that allows the tower to be seen as a conceptual experience, too. Being that it’s above an art museum, there is of course attention to detail in the furniture and finishes as well (note the Eames molded plastic chairs).
