Joël Robuchon Plans New Restaurant in Geneva
Acclaimed French chef Joël Robuchon may hold more Michelin stars than anybody else, but it looks like he might try for a few more. Robuchon just announced the future opening of a brand-new restaurant in Geneva, Switzerland.
According to The Local Switzerland, Robuchon says he will be opening a new version of his L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon restaurants in Geneva in 2018. "L’Atelier" means workshop, and the concept takes a more informal, counter-service approach to high-end dining. The newest L’Atelier will reportedly be located in Geneva’s Hotel President Wilson, a five-star hotel that boasts the largest penthouse suite in Europe.
Robuchon’s restaurant empire has restaurants all over the world and currently possesses a combined 31 Michelin stars. In addition to the coming Geneva location, the L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon concept has had locations in Paris, London, Las Vegas, New York, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
Robuchon has been called the “Chef of the Century” and previously announced plans to open his own culinary school in 2018 in western France.
