Famed French chef Pierre Gagnaire has been enlisted to create the menu for the first restaurant at Louvre Abu Dhabi.
The museum in the UAE capital is set to open Parisian brasserie Fouquet in 2020, and the man behind Pierre’s Bar and Bistro in Dubai will be in charge of the food.
The restaurant will be a partnership between Barriere Group and Louvre Abu Dhabi.
Manuel Rabate, director of Louvre Abu Dhabi, said: "Abu Dhabi is known for its collaborations with some of the world’s premier brands and this partnership with Barriere Group is yet another fine example. With the opening of Fouquet’s at Louvre Abu Dhabi next year, the museum continues to bring unique and exceptional experiences to Saadiyat Island.”
Fouquet’s currently has branches around the world including eight in France, with the Paris outlet recently re-opening following severe damage.
