The place to be in the Marais district! Chef Thomas Coupeau has moved to the Fondation to offer a café-restaurant serving tasty food during the day and evening.

At lunchtime, in the afternoons and evenings, the menu offers gourmet, comforting dishes inspired by the chef's childhood memories, the recipes of his restaurant-owning parents and the scents of the pots prepared by his Vietnamese grandparents. The menu, in tune with the seasons, changes every week, so you might be lucky enough to try tasty baked sweet potatoes, dressed in a fresh chive cream and barley miso glaze, or mac'n'chesse cacio e pepe style, accompanied by one of the natural wines carefully selected by the team. For dessert or an afternoon snack, banana bread, cookies, profiteroles revisited and other delicious pastries await you - with a chai latte or scented tea.

It's also the perfect opportunity to take a break after a visit to an exhibition, surrounded by works by contemporary artists in an exceptional setting designed by Rem Koolhaas.

Made up of a set of thirteen photographic prints, Le temps scellé series presents a deserted landscape. The human absence suggests a disaster-stricken, even post-apocalyptic place. Dove Allouche travelled to Tallinn in Estonia to the locations for Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker (1979) to photograph the mysterious “zone” that intrigues the film’s protagonists. Nearly thirty years later, the artist captured this place using the same shots and light used by Tarkovsky. This duality highlights the permanence of the memory of a place where time seems to be frozen or “sealed” according to the title of the work. By mimetically recording Stalker’s topography, Allouche explores his favoured themes of time and the invisible while recreating the atmosphere of a place that evokes both Soviet history and the genesis of a major work of cinematic fiction.
