L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

Last Thanksgiving weekend, hubby and I had dinner at l'Atelier de Joël Robuchon. We wanted to book the restaurant, which has three Michelin stars, but it was fully booked. L'Atelier, which has two Michelin stars, was not such a bad alternative with a more relaxed ambience and no less than sumptuous offerings in the menu...

We were seated in a very nice, quiet corner at the bar, where you can see the all the action in the kitchen. It was very interesting to watch how organized everything is, and how everyone is so busy cooking and preparing the meals. The room was mostly painted in black, with red highlights. The lighting reminded me so much of stage lighting, but instead of the stage, you have the kitchen and your food on spotlight. It's as if you are about to watch a very interesting performance.
