Louvre Abu Dhabi today announced that it will be turning the museum’s restaurant into the first Abu Dhabi-based branch of globally-known brasserie-style restaurant, Fouquet’s.
The restaurant’s menu will be created in collaboration with renowned French chef Pierre Gagnaire, head chef and owner of Pierre Gagnaire restaurant, and will include a number of Fouquet’s signature dishes as well as those reflecting the local culture and the tastes of international guests.
Known already for its links to the world of art and culture, Fouquet’s is a high-end brasserie-style restaurant has branches in international locations including Paris, Cannes, Toulouse and Marrakech.
Drawing inspiration from the museum’s elegant and artistic atmosphere, Fouquet’s Abu Dhabi will also remain true to the brand’s decorative elegance with its unique ambiance and distinctive interior.
Designed by Jean Nouvel, the restaurant area at Louvre Abu Dhabi is currently made up of modular compartments taking inspiration from Arabic patterns. Nouvel has also designed furniture elements that complement the light-filled interiors and panoramic views of the sea. This includes bespoke chandeliers, manufactured by Mobilier national, that hang over the six VIP tables.
The opening won't take place until 2020, but we are looking forward to seeing the partnership of two iconic brands in our cultured capital.
