Culinary masterpieces will soon find its way to Louvre Abu Dhabi courtesy of a renowned French brasserie.
The museum’s restaurant will become the new branch of Fouquet’s, adding to the prestigious restaurant’s outlets in Paris, Cannes, Toulouse in France and Marrakech in Morocco.
Creating the menu will be no less than Michelin star chef Pierre Gagnaire, head chef and owner of Pierre Gagnaire restaurant.
Menu details are scarce at the moment but we’ve heard that the dishes will carry Fouquet’s signature dishes plus items catering to local tastes.
Aesthetics wise, the restaurant will take inspiration from the museum’s tasteful and artistic ambiance to complement the custom-built furniture deigned by French architect Jean Nouvel.
Opened in 1899 in Paris, Fouquet’s is located at 99 Avenue des Champs-Elysees.
The restaurant is listed as a historical French monument and has, and continues, to host celebrities and renowned personalities from the arts and culture scene.
