CANTINE CALIFORNIA

Paris food truck pioneers are now pimping their “delicious (and organic) street food” from a first bricks and mortar restaurant at Arts-et-Métiers. The heart of the menu remains the range of toothsome burgers made with quality ingredients including organic French beef, home-made sauces, and non-industrial buns, but here is expanded to include salads and some small plates. So there’s now avocado on toast (4€), mini-burgers (6€), single tacos (4€) and a couple of salads in small or large formats. There’s a short breakfast or brunch menu too, with US classics granola (10€) and maple syrup pancakes (13€). The drinks menu is to the point, with quality coffee, organic wines, locally brewed beers from Gallia and Deck & Donohue on tap, or for the more adventurous, get a 1 litre pitcher of Margarita. The stylish interiors create a perfect setting for good times with friends.

CLAUDE LEVEQUE AT THE LOUVRE

French artist Claude Lévêque installs a red neon lightning bolt under the Louvre’s Pyramid, now the “the biggest circus tent in the world” according to the title of the show. His intervention follows that of other contemporary artists Tony Cragg, Wim Delvoye and Loris Gréaud inside I. M. Pei’s iconic Pyramid. The red neon – a signature medium for Lévêque – slices an immense volume of air to scatter reflections on the surrounding architecture. As guest artist in residence at the Louvre, Lévêque’s engagement begins with this light installation then will extend  to the Louvre’s underground medieval moat in autumn 2015.
>Until 2 Jan. >9am-5.45pm (9.30pm Wed, Fri). Closed Tue. >Louvre, entrance through Pyramid, Cour Napoléon, 1st. M° Palais Royal. www.louvre.fr
