At L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, diners can watch the chef prepare their dish right before their eyes in a bar setup, witnessing the turning of simple ingredients into complex dishes.
Chef Axel Manes, winner of a Michelin Star, uses the best produce to create dishes that surprise and satisfy, like black truffle on confit potato and L'aubergine, a seemingly basic stack of mozzarella, tomato, and eggplant.
If you have a hankering for a quality meat or seafood dish, or even smaller, equally worthy dishes, this is the place to dine. Though expensive, their mashed potatoes are one of their pride and joys, buttery and rich, starters like caviar, foie gras, and gyoza serve as some of the most popular, and the tender beef cheek is highly requested, as well as the Ravioli of langoustine, a lobster, in Savoy cabbage.
Though luxury, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon is one of the best restaurants in Paris, offering tasting to larger plates, perfect for an intimate date to celebrate the food being prepared.
