Artshop

Restaurant – and cafeteria – situated in the heart of the Musée des Arts Contemporains du Grand Hornu and the Centre d’innovation et du design, RIZOM presents a cuisine on the crossroads of cultures.

The Walloon basin itself originated from various migrations. Today it is the home of age-old regional products and at the same time it is the cradle of modern thinking and technology. RIZOM’s cuisine sprouts from these contrasts, and reflects the idea of a contemporary regional cuisine. RIZOM presents a cuisine with diverse roots, and brings fresh, local and seasonal products on the plate.

It features a large selection of artistic and historic publications to do with the sites and current exhibitions.
