The Musée Rodin has long been one of the small jewels of Paris’s museums - where you are rarely disturbed by crowds. The three hectares of ornamental gardens attract visitors as much as the 300 works by the great sculptor exhibited in the museum’s Hotel Biron, an imposing 17th-century mansion.
Within the sculpture garden, not far from Rodin’s iconic Penseur (The Thinker), the cafe has a minimalist interior salon; it’s open year round but the place really comes to life once the weather is nice enough to sit outside and you can take in the beautiful views over museum’s garden.
The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch or a gourmet break with a menu combining bistronomy and gourmet delicacies by Amandine Chaignot of Restaurant Pouliche acclaim. Expect fresh, seasonal produces from French terroir with dishes such as: smoked trout salad with a citrus fruit vinaigrette, braised beef with parsnip and juniper-roasted pears and skate wings served with spring vegetables.
Open Tuesday-Sunday 10am-6.30pm.
