User: En Plein Ciel, Eiffel Tower Restaurant
Date of plate: 1950s – circa 1970s
Notes: Now closed, the En Plein Ciel – which translates to "in full sky" – was one of the Eiffel Tower restaurants that predated the major Tower reconstruction effort of 1981-1983. This ambitious reconstruction effort strengthened the Tower in parts and also lightened it with the removal of 1,340 tons of material. The 2nd Floor construction of the panoramic Jules Verne restaurant was one phase of this extensive renovation effort. As of 2008, the Jules Verne, the Altitude 95 and Les Buffets De La Tour Eiffel are the only listed restaurants of the Eiffel Tower directory.
