L’Atelier Etoile de Joël Robuchon | Paris, France | A fantastic Hidden-Gourmet-Gem, in the heart of Etoile, off Champs Elysées and meters away from Arc de Triomphe. We discovered this restaurant thanks to the advice and invitation of our friend Valerie S., who is a regular when in Paris. Trust me on this one, as we trusted her. You will walk by the door of the Plubicis Drugstore (I know, you will say, Carlos went mad ?)… Go by, to the end of the hallway and down the mirror walled stairs… et Voila. !!! magic happens.
On the top of les Champs Elysées and located in the Drugstore Publicis, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Etoile offers an original gastronomy based on the concept that allows the customers to observe the preparation of the dishes. Seven years after the opening of the first Atelier in Saint Germain des Près, this second Atelier welcomes his customers in a friendly and peaceful place where the executives chef David Alves and Filippos Chronopoulos and their staff prepare Joël Robuchon’s classic dishes in small or large portions depending on your appetite ! At L’Atelier de Joël robuchon Etoile you can choose between the counter or the tables for a complete freedom with a menu of more than sixty references renewed and varied where it is emphasized on seasons and daily market products.
Great overall experience, menu, atmosphere and aesthetics. Amuse-Bouche, une Entree au choix, un plat au choix and either fromage or dessert. An I must mention that my dessert was just a piece of art. Not only the three of us enjoyed, over wine pairing, a fabulous conversation and eventing, but also Bruna joined us, and slept the entire dinner over their comfy black velvet sofas. A keeper. Thank you Valerie for the introduction and company. OH BTW the rumor is, that soon we will be lucky to have L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in New York. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
