L’Atelier is all about the dining experience. Downstairs, beside the open kitchen, you can eat while enjoying a non-stop theatrical display, and even chat with the chefs who are preparing your meal, before they hand it to you across the Indian rosewood counter surrounding the kitchen area. The theatrical effect is intensified by the shiny black background, offset by thick red velvety curtains, and the red leather high stools on which the diners sit – even the open kitchen glows red.

Upstairs is La Cuisine, which means The Kitchen. It actually is an open-plan kitchen, with the dining tables set amongst the work stations, the idea being to do away with the barriers between diner and chef. As the seating is more conventional up here, it’s a bit more conducive to a romantic dinner à deux.

As you would expect at a Michelin-starred restaurant, the food is as dramatic as the ambience, with menus that feature exquisite French cuisine, combined with the international perspective for which Robuchon is renowned. He is also renowned for his legendary pommes purées, the most luxurious mashed potatoes on the planet. L’Atelier offers a rare chance to enjoy the finest of fine dining, minus the usual fuss and flummery.
