L’ATELIER de Joel Robuchon

I finally got a chance to dine at one of Robuchon’s restaurants and the experience was every bit what I had imagined, if not MORE.

We chose to sit by the open kitchen, or the by the “bar” so that we can get a good look at the action by the teppanyaki grill. The surrounding area was very dim; as you would expect from a very trendy / chic restaurant. Not surprisingly, the diners (except me) were also very trendy / chic … definitely eye candies 🙂

The servers were very attentive and were very helpful in recommending dishes to us, but even before they took down our orders, got us comfortably drinking very expensive bottles of San Pelligrino. We were then served complimentary Foie Gras Pâté with Cappuccino and Chocolate Reduction which was quite an experience in itself altogether, not to mention a pleasant surprise!

The following dishes include:

Le Homard: Maine Lobster in Turnip Raviolis
La Chataigne: Chestnut Soup in a Celery Broth with Smoked Bacon and Foie Gras
Le Crabe: King Crab and Avocado Salad with Buffalo Mozzarella and Virgin Olive Oil
L’Entrecote: Thick Sliced Wagyu Beef Sirloin
L’Oursin: Sea Urchin Spaghetti

For more detail, please click into each of the photos!

In the end, the bill came to HKD 3,300+, which is definitely not cheap (Note that we had a glass of wine each, the cheapest wine by the glass is around HKD 300). Compared with Bo Innovation, however, I’d actually choose this restaurant for a return visit.

Next time, I’d definitely save some space for their dessert.

  1. Looks incredible, if I didn’t live halfway around the world I’d check it out.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Josh … I’m sure there are plenty of these restaurants where you are! “Halfway around the world” to me seems like you’re either in UK / France or the States? Do let us know if you come across any good restaurants! Cheers

  3. […] you have forgotten, dinner for 2 set us back HK$ 3,300. Well, I blame my brother … his stomach is a bottomless pit (no one in the family knows how […]

  4. […] dish kind of reminds me of the Sea Urchin Spaghetti I had at Robuchon a while ago … not quite as thick and creamy, but comparable in satisfaction and cholesterol […]
