Workshop dinner

A bus will take you directly from Minatec to the workshop dinner at 18:30. Dinner will take place at the gourmet restaurant Le Fantin Latour, downtown. The price of the meal is 50€ all-inclusive.

This fine 19C townhouse, formerly the Musée Fantin Latour, makes for a fairy-tale setting. There is plenty of character in the food with its complex associations of flavours, vegetables and vivid colours. The chef makes the food into a real spectacle!

Do you know who was H. Fantin Latour?
