Forest: Julien Sebbag's new terrace that everyone is talking about

The Forest Restaurant by Julien Sebbag

And three! After taking over the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette with the coolest Creatures and Tortuga , the darling chef Julien Sebbag is setting up his new terrace in the middle of the esplanade of the Museum of Modern Art , with a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower.

For this new project, the cook called on Dorion Fiszel at the DA, his team organizer of the “ Je t'aime Party ” at the Rouge Pigalle , bringing his festive aura and the promise of an incomparable atmosphere. A tip (and even two): book QUICKLY, and ask for table 100, the best placed to admire the panorama to the sound of a chill-out playlist.

Note: the terrace is installed for summer only, and from the start of the school year, the adventure will continue inside in the new dining room, an extension of the outside.

A place of atmosphere

3 chocos cookies by Julien Sebbag

A real place of life, Forest (which takes its name from the cult song of the Cure ) first attracts attention for its frankly exceptional setting. Between the columns of the Museum of Modern Art, one could not dream of a terrace so protected from cars, above the basin with the trees, the Seine and the Eiffel Tower as far as the eye can see. Did you say romantic?

Obviously, the young studio Uchronia has once again responded to imagine a raw and mineral decor in line with the architecture of the building that surrounds it and, always, an open kitchen so as not to miss any service. In a good mood, it seems!

It's better to share
