L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Paris
Owned by renowned French chef and restauranteur Joël Robuchon, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon showcases the chef’s award-winning haute French cuisine. The restaurant, which opened in 2003, was designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon and is decked in Robuchon’s signature red and black. The focal point of the dining room is the open kitchen, and the restaurant’s 40 chairs are carefully arranged around it, allowing diners to observe the preparation of their dishes. Menus include full-size entrées and smaller a la carte dishes, such as foie gras with asparagus, as well as decadent desserts.
