The foundation had temporarily closed its doors in March 2020, at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, to finally reopen its doors a year later.

Appear on the big screen

If we had to go back to the post-war period for its “modern” opening, the restaurant has been around since the 19th century. The first version appeared on Earth in 1872, before undergoing a facelift in 1924, to finally experience a revival in 1954 after falling into disuse.
