Perched atop the Palais de Tokyo museum, eatery Nomiya offers Paris' best view of the Eiffel Tower. Just don't call it a restaurant. It's an art and food installation, say the space's representatives.

Open for one year only, Nomiya (named after the small bars found in Japan) is a modernist glass and metal pod housing kitchen and dining areas.

Culinary director Gilles Stassart has designed five-course menus intended to "bridge the plastic and culinary arts." Sample dinner items include a fish roll with yogurt and crushed beetroot.

The brainchild of appliance manufacturer Electrolux, Nomiya is a part of the brand's "Art Home" concept which also includes a rooftop terrace, herb garden and cooking classes. Lunch costs 60 euros ($85); dinner, 80 euros ($113).


Palais de Tokyo, 13 Avenue du President Wilson, +33-1-47-23-54-01.
