CITY GUIDE / PARIS / RESTAURANTS / MCDONALD’S LOUVRE

Ronald McDonald meets Jean Prouvé at a surprising new Paris outpost of McDonald’s, designed by the architect Philippe Avanzi in association with Vitra. Located underneath the Louvre, the brief was to create a space fitting of its historic position. Gone is the garish colour scheme and plastic seating, replaced instead by design icons including Fritz Hansen chairs and Prouvé loungers, amongst other Vitra classics. It looks like the sort of restaurant that might cook up Asian fusion cuisine rather than Big Macs and McChicken sandwiches. With its proximity to the tents of Paris fashion week, could this be the new Café Flore?
