Raza here, reporting back from my recent trip to Paris where I enjoyed the many culinary delights the city has to offer. The highlight of the trip was being able to score a seat at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon to celebrate my birthday. So I didn’t have a reservation going in and just trekked over to the restaurant hoping a party didn’t show up for the initial seating. And lucky me, after a fifteen minute wait I had a seat! Unlike your typical two Michelin star restaurant with an air towards formality, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon has a more casual setting with counter seating surrounding an open kitchen. Diners have the opportunity to observe a world class kitchen staff in a well choreographed dance creating unforgettably delectable dishes. The menu read like a culinary concerto making it hard not to order one of everything. So rather than making the difficult decisions myself, naturally I ordered the tasting menu, allowing me to experience a wide array of dishes. I will let the pictures do the talking, but the dinner was exquisite and the service was outstanding. While not a milestone birthday dinner, it’s one that was truly memorable!
