L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon

Gastronomy in St-Germain & Les Invalides

This two-Michelin-star restaurant established by Joël Robuchon (1945–2018) takes diners on a mind-blowing culinary tour of French gastronomy's finer ingredients, lobster, sardines, foie gras and milk-fed lamb included. Dining is stool-style around a communal U-shaped black-lacquer bar (ideal for solo diners) in a Japanese-accented dining room with bamboo in glass vases.

There's a wine shop, La Cave de Joël Robuchon, around the corner, and a second atelier restaurant inside the Champs-Élysées' Publicis Drugstore.
