L'Atelier is the groundbreaking concept from the legendary Chef Joël Robuchon groundbreaking concept, which first opened in Paris’ Saint-Germain neighborhood in 2003. Currently with 10 distinct locations around the world, each restaurant feels of-its-place, staying true to the original Parisian roots, while drawing inspiration from the surrounding city and neighborhood--including New York's Meatpacking District.

L’Atelier’s name refers to a craftsman’s workshop, emphasizing Chef Joël Robuchon’s hallmark of elevating the simplest of dishes into something extraordinary using pristine ingredients, immaculate technique, and abundant creativity.The restaurant’s signature 34-seat dining counter seating faces directly into the open kitchen, allowing for a dynamic interaction between chef and diner, and view into the creative process.

Chef Robuchon's protégés carry on this culinary philosophy at L'Atelier New York, with a Modern French menu featuring iconic signature dishes, alongside new, ever-changing seasonal creations utilizing ingredients sourced from top local and regional purveyors. The team was awarded 2 Michelin Stars from the 2019 guide.

The legendary Chef Joël Robuchon was a visionary and trailblazer who transformed the way French cuisine was prepared and presented. At the time of his passing in August 2018 he held 31 Michelin stars—more than any chef in history—and ran 29 restaurants spanning 11 countries, in cities including Paris, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, London, Monaco, New York, and Tokyo, among others. He was awarded the Meilleur Ouvrier de France (France's Best Craftsman) in cuisine; was titled "Chef of the Century" by the guide Gault Millau; and mentored a generation of renowned chefs including Eric Ripert and Gordon Ramsay.
