Joel Robuchon's New York L'Atelier Closing

The Four Seasons has decided to part ways with L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

Joël Robuchon's Michelin-starred name seems to be leaving New York for the time being, as the Four Seasons and L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon are parting ways at the end of June.

L'Atelier, which opened in 2006, received a second Michelin star in 2011. Robuchon has the most Michelin stars of any chef, racking up some 26 in 2011.

According to the press release, the parting is mutual, as it "allows both parties to focus on new business ventures. Chef Joël Robuchon will move forward to new high profile projects to be announced in the next few months as well as continue to oversee his restaurants throughout the world."

The last dinner service will be June 30, 2012; a representative for the Four Seasons tells us, "We look forward to announce a new venture at a later date."
