Joël Robuchon, celebrated French chef and the Michelin Guide’s most starred chef in the world (25 at last count), has announced the return of L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon to New York City. In 2012, the original, L’Atelier New York, closed at the Four Seasons Hotel with two Michelin stars and three stars from The New York Times.
L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon will reopen at Brookfield Place in Battery Park City, Manhattan in March 2015, with a fine dining room, a more casual bar and lounge area, and waterside outdoor seating.
“L’Atelier, whose name refers to an artist’s studio, emphasizes Chef Robuchon’s hallmark of highly refined clockwork precision and abundant creativity to create simple, straightforward dishes prepared with the highest quality of ingredients,” announced L’Atelier in a press release.
“Dissolving the boundaries between kitchen and dining room, seats at L’Atelier de Joёl Robuchon are arranged around a counter looking directly into the kitchen, allowing a dynamic interaction between chef and diner and offering direct access to the creative process.
