L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Las Vegas

L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon is the name of eight French gourmet restaurants, located in Hong Kong, Las Vegas, London, Paris, Singapore, Taipei and Tokyo.

Owned by chef Joël Robuchon, the restaurants serve his French haute cuisine in a stylized environment. Many of the seats are arranged to overlook the meal preparation in the kitchen.

L'Atelier translates to "workshop," and the term atelier is commonly used to refer to the workshop of an artist in the fine or decorative arts. The restaurants feature sushi bar like seating around the kitchen allowing guests to watch the chefs at work.[1]

Robuchon's signature dishes include a cauliflower cream with caviar and potato puree, "Pommes Puree Truffee" truffled potatoes, and his "La Caille Farcie de Foie Gras et Caramelisee", free-range quail stuffed with foie gras.[citation needed]

In 2012, the Paris location of L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in Saint Germain was voted 12th best in the world in Restaurant magazine's Top 50.[citation needed]

The Las Vegas location is known for its 3-course prix fixe menu: L’Unique.[2] [3]

The restaurant will open a ninth location in 2014, at MahaNakhon in Thailand, called L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon (Bangkok). [4]
