L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Bangkok
A casual elegant dining concept is new to Bangkok. A professional interaction between chefs and diners in a convivial atmosphere lets diners relax and enjoy the experience, seated around the open kitchen watching as chefs experiment and create, work on new ideas and fuse different concepts, right in front of them.
The culinary opera’s stage is set in classic black and red with the open kitchen dominating. Conducting the performance is Executive Chef Olivier Limousin who has worked with ‘The Master’, Joel Robuchon, for the past 12 years starting in Paris, then London, and now here in Bangkok for the past year. He is the gatekeeper, meticulously controlling the flow of dishes from the kitchen to the counter. He never stops reminding his team that the core of this business is to give pleasure to their guests.
The place settings are simple and modern, yet elegant. Just a simple dark brown place mat, cutlery which is replaced before the serving of the next dish, a water and a wine glass, the benchmarks of today’s comfortably elegant dining. There is no formal dress code just that it should be appropriate.
