Les Ombres Restaurant Review

: The Musée du Quai Branly offers two options for dining: the Café Branly on the garden level and a restaurant, Les Ombres, on the rooftop (both independently accessible). A departure from Jean Nouvel’s strong, colorful architecture, what distinguishes Les Ombres is its exceptional view of the Eiffel Tower. The structure so impressed the architect that he designed the restaurant’s décor with a theme of metallic lace on everything from the floor to the plates. This, and not the lost civilizations of the Musée du Quai Branly exhibits, is the inspiration for the name, Les Ombres (The Shadows). The cuisine has been entrusted to Jean-François Oyon and the pastries to Pascal Chanceau, formerly at Drouant. Do not look for authentic, indigenous cuisine on the menu, but foie gras with a chutney of spicy beets, scallops à la plancha with citrus fruit butter and braised chicory, beef filet with black truffle sauce, and puff tart perfumed with vanilla and pear. Menu at €38 and €65 à la carte.
