When a friend and I visited Paris, the friend we were staying with recommended this place, and it was fabulous! If you want to visit one of the trendiest restaurants in Paris, this is the one! Located on the top floor of the Centre Pompidou, if you take the escalators to go up you will see even more amazing views of the city and Eiffel Tower. When you enter, you pass an outdoor terrace and reflecting pool, and the decor inside is full of steel and aluminum exposed piping, but it gives it a really cool feeling. The chairs are all white leather and quite striking, and the lighting (from below the table) is subtle and intimate. The food they serve is Asian-inspired. We ordered exotic cocktails, and there was DJ music playing in the background.
The food was interestingly presented and tasty, but one of our favorites aspects of this restaurant was the panoramic views afforded of the city, with their wrap-around windows. The best part was watching the Eiffel Tower light up at night, so go for dinner! It's beautiful!

we went there for lunch, so the clientele was not quite as ultra-hip as the dinner crowd is certain to be (in fact, we sat next to a family with two small children who puttered with their frites and acted bored), but it was still a pretty good spread of beautiful people.
the food was delicious, albeit quite pricey, but what really made this place over the top was the inimitable panoramic views of all of paris, which you can enjoy while sitting at your table. also over the top are the menus, which are printed on almost a vellum paper which, when properly folded, spells the name "georges" in misty, ethereal letters among clouds (puffs of smoke?).
if you really dig the atmosphere, be sure to stop at the hostess desk on the way out and purchase a compact disc of the music their live d.j. plays there.
oh, and you MUST check out the bathrooms which are separated from the main room by opaque glass and whose fixtures are none other than standard prison issue stainless steel.
