One of France’s most decorated chefs is unveiling a revamped Jules Verne restaurant in the Eiffel Tower next month, the Journal du Dimanche newspaper reported. Alain Ducasse and Sodexho, the French catering services giant, took over management of the Jules Verne and the tower’s other restaurants earlier this year. The iconic Jules Verne restaurant, overlooking Paris from the second level of the 1,024-foot tower, underwent a makeover that Ducasse said he hoped will attract Parisians and tourists alike. “Jules Verne should be a restaurant of French tastes, in terms of design and cuisine,” he told the weekly paper. That means no egg rolls, he added. The unusual setting posed several challenges. All the furniture had to be weighed to meet the tower’s weight limits. Because of fire risks, the kitchen cannot use any gas that would produce flames. What’s next for Ducasse? “The Empire State Building,” the chef mused. “Or a restaurant on Mars, to be closer to the stars.”center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
