Cuisine: French

Style/Ambiance: Culinary history was made when legendary chef Joël Robuchon opened his first fine dining restaurant in the United States.

Featuring traditional French cuisine in a elegant setting reminiscent of 1930s Paris, guests can taste the fare of a culinary icon who has won more Michelin stars than any other chef in the world. Delights include lobster in a sealed cocotte, sautéed veal chop with natural jus, and French hen with roasted foie gras. With photos of Joël Robuchon and his celebrity diners adorning the restaurant walls, guests will be in excellent company at this Forbes Five Star venue.
