He was the chef at Lucas Carton from 1985 until 2005, when he took over the restaurant and renamed it Alain Senderens. He famously claimed to hand back his three Michelin stars after the restaurant was relaunched, saying he could not charge an affordable price for meals while keeping up the standards Michelin required. As a result, Senderens stated that the customers pay a third of the former prices, return more often, and the profits are nearly four times of what they were.
Alain Senderens trained Alain Passard of Restaurant Arpege.
