L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon


After pleasing patrons in Las Vegas, Paris, New York and even Tokyo, Joel Robuchon has now graced the capitol of England. This fantastic French restaurant in the Covent Garden area is elegant, expensive and the perfect example of a fine dining eatery. With two dining rooms and a bar, acquiring a table here is easy on weekdays, but can be quite a struggle on weekends. The red and black decor and the efficient waiters in crisp uniforms are enough to prove that this is not a tacky fish & chips place. Choosing from the colossal menu can be baffling sometimes, so take the guidance of waiters, and watch the expert chefs as they whip up your orders in the open kitchen. Upstairs, the scene is a tad laid-back, so once you are satiated, you can head there for a couple of drinks. Do not dress too casually if you want to avoid embarrassment.
