Starred chef Eric Maire is taking over the restaurant spaces of the Centre Pompidou-Metz and reopening La Voile Blanche café (July 7th, 2016) and restaurant (July 27th, 2016).
In order to turn these two facilities in the center of the garden and architecture of the Centre Pompidou-Metz into places of conviviality, Eric Maire has transformed “La Voile Blanche” restaurant into a new, brightened and refined space opening up on an intimate, green and welcoming patio.
The menu propose seasonal products in close partnership with local producers and market gardeners. Fish come from Brittany and meat from Lorraine and Limousin. The menu revolve around organic products, with tasty vegetarian alternatives. Wine be a key product of the restaurant with options of Grands Crus tasting.
The restaurant welcoming and dynamic staff rely on young people from the Raymond Mondon hotel school of Metz as well as Eric Maire’s team from L’Ecluse.
With an independent access from the museum, the restaurant is open for lunch and diner outside of the opening hours of the Centre Pompidou-Metz (closed on Sunday, Monday evening and Tuesday).
La Voile Blanche Café is open during opening hours of the Centre Pompidou-Metz.
Special events will be organized like Sunday brunches or themed gastronomic nights.
With the ambition of reviving La Voile Blanche as a must-stop for gourmets, Eric Maire truly hopes this new version of the restaurant will meet the expectations of usual clients while conquering new ones.
Native from the department of Moselle, Eric Maire has worked with several starred chefs like Bernard Loiseau. In 2000, he earned a star when running L’Écluse restaurant, before inaugurating a “cooking workshop” named À Côté in 2008.
