The amazing chef Massimo Bottura opened a permanent restaurant in Paris on place de la Madeleine, called Le Refettorio Paris. The concept is to use what people think is waste and transform it into opportunities! Every night chefs will turn ordinary ingredients into extraordinary meals. This is not a charity project, it's a cultural one. JR created an art installation for the space.
The restaurant will be open for dinner from Monday to Friday for people in situations of social vulnerability transforming surplus ingredients - that would otherwise be wasted - into delicious meals. By involving artists, architects and designers the idea is to create an engaging and inspiring space, where people feel valued and welcome.
