Restaurant Georges is the ultimate in trendy restaurants. Located on the 6th floor of Centre Georges Pompidou in the center of Paris, it has beautiful panoramic views.  The design of the restaurant is the work of Dominique Jacob and Brendan McFarlane, and is a chic space that mixes contemporary sleek design with the industrial design of the building. Contoured aluminum walls create semi-private dining areas.  The restaurant is buzzing, full of international diners, all languages mixing in the air with the contemporary tunes spun by a live DJ. I had the pleasure of dining there last evening with my dear friends, photographer and filmmakers, Sophie and Manu.  Fabulous food, company and views!

The Georges Pompidou Centre itself, was conceived by Georges Pompidou, President of the French Republique, as a modern cultural center where the arts, a great library, music, cinema, and performance would occupy a single modern building in the heart of Paris.  The team of architects, headed by the British architect couple, Richard and Su Rogers, was awarded the Pritzker Prize.  The design turned the architecture world upside down with its skeleton of colored tubes.  The center houses the Musée National d'Art Moderne, the second largest collection of modern and contemporary art in the world.      click here for live webcams
