Now, heading to the Musée d'Art Moderne will also mean loving art, and wanting to treat our taste buds right. As a matter of fact, modern art fans and gastronomy connoisseurs can meet at the MAM to discover the museum’s new restaurant by Julien Sebbag.
Called Forest in tribute to famous new-wave song “The Forest” by British band The Cure, this new restaurant by Moma Group extends to fit Paris Museum of Modern Art opening hours inside, as well as outdoor thanks to the beautiful and wide terrace.
“Foret is an experimental place making all possible efforts to meet a fundamental ethic: eco-responsibility. We can think of a sort of post-apocalyptic forest in a close future where nature reasserts itself. And us, very in all humility, we try to accompany it with produces favoring recycling, local food, and a genuine value for crafts”, chef Julien Sebbag explains – as he was already behind Creatures and Tortuga.
The menu gives pride of place to plants that craftily shines a light on seafood and animal products and can be seen from the open-plan kitchen. Among the dishes kicking things off, Mezcal Union-flambéed oyster mushrooms, brown mushroom cream, pickled rhubarb, parsley and snow pea baby sprout oil; asparagus and snow pea salad, radish petal, cumin seed and cilantro marinated feta, sesame; kabob patty, braised eggplant, raw tuna, colorful tomato salad with wild garlic, as well as colorful zucchini carpaccio, kalamata olives, Stracciatella, sundried tomatoes, wild oregano, and sumac.
To toast, Forest serves original cocktails based on three elements – water, fire, and rye – such as the Panacea to share at the fountain covered in ivy and filled with big ice cubes and based on fennel, apple, and Ginger beer.
In addition to good food, Forest guarantees a good atmosphere thanks to parties held by DJ and producer Dorion Fiszel that will pace the summer 2021 on the terrace!
