Yesterday we decided to visit the Musee D’Orsay and planned to have lunch there. We went to Le Restaurant and were met with the amazing room shown above. The former restaurant of the Hôtel d’Orsay, on the first floor of the museum, is still as magnificent as it was when it opened in 1900. The sobriety of the new construction by the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte sets off the dazzling chandeliers and the painted and gilded ceilings of this dining room, listed as a Historic Monument. The room is drop dead gorgeous.
