Food as an Art: Elegance and Sophistication at L'Atelier du Joël Robuchon 

An unforgettable and a most remarkable dining experience at Chef Robuchon’s NYC L’Atelier!  I had dinner here in August 2011.  From the food, presentation, ambiance and service…everything was top-notch.  The partnership with the Four Seasons had to end, sadly at the end of June 2012, and this restaurant closed too soon for it to become one of my regular favorites, however it remains as one of the best dinners in my lifetime so far!  

Dinner as I can remember —

  • An Amuse Bouche 

  • Crab with Seafood Broth & Avocado (appetizer)

  • Sea Urchin Gelee (appetizer)

  • Quail & Foie Gras 

  • Roasted Veal Cheeks

  • Wagyu Beef Rib-Eye

  • Peach Champagne Mousse (dessert)

  • Chocolate Mousse with Gold Leaf (dessert)

  • Joël Robuchon candy (complimentary)

Thank you, Chef. I’m awaiting your return to NYC.
