Pamela Anderson Is Opening a Restaurant in France Next Month
Actress Pamela Anderson will be opening a new pop-up restaurant in France this July.
La table du Marche, opening to the public for 50 days starting on July 4, will serve vegan dishes like tomato tartar with goji berries, risotto with asparagus, and eggplant candied tomatoes. Anderson is teaming up with Chef Christophe Leroy, whose restaurants can be found across Saint-Tropez, Ramatuelle, Paris, Marrakech, and Morocco.
Though details are still scarce on what the restaurant's design will look like, diners can expect a “festive,” “glamorous,” and “sensual atmosphere,” at the eatery, according to Anderson's post on her website. It will be located at the Moulins de Ramatuelle, a country inn owned by Leroy that sits surrounded by vineyards and gardens.
The prix fixe offerings range from 50 euros (about $55), for reservations from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., to 120 euros (about $133), for reservations from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Anderson has expressed her passion for veganism, animal rights, and environmental concerns, working with organizations like PETA, Mercy for Animals, and the International Fund for Animal Welfare. The actress first mentioned the opening of the space in a tribute to her boyfriend, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. She's using the pop-up restaurant as a somewhat unusual way to reach out to French President Emmanuel Macron.
“I am opening a new vegan restaurant in France in July, and I would like to extend my invitation to the new President and his First Lady; join me on the day I open the doors, and we will sit and eat good food and discuss what can be done for Julian,” she added in the post.
