It’s taken almost 150-years to realize its original design for a restaurant within the famed Palais Garnier, but in 2011 comes the restaurant inside that grand rotunda space that’s immediately become the toughest reservation in Paris. Designed by Odile Decq, the booming architect behind Rome’s award-winning Museum of Contemporary Art, the L’Opera Restaurant is concealed behind the pillars of the eastern facade within a glass sarcophagus supported by a single piece of steel. The multi-level restaurant features an upper mezzanine as dramatic as the best Puccini opera, with grand staircase lined in red carpet ready for its solo act.
