The big restaurant at the Palais de Tokyo is a fun place to eat and happily it’s now open every day, even when the art space is closed. In winter, it runs inside, along the ground-floor facade of the building, with artists’ chairs and sputnik-style lights. But the real plus is summer, when it migrates outdoors onto the airy terrace that spans the arch between the Palais de Tokyo and Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. I enjoyed the thick gazpacho soup and mains include salmon tartare with spinach salad and hot dishes like roast chicken and spare ribs. The mood is laidback and friendly, and I much prefer it to the pricier, more pretentious Monsieur Bleu at the other end of the Palais. Staff bring out red blankets if it starts to get a little chilly.
