L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon officially opens in Dubai with terrace launch
L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon has opened its private outdoor terrace in DIFC, marking the official opening of this new venue.
The expansive terrace area is envisioned as an immersive space for dining, where guests are invited into the world of the renowned Italian artist Philippe Pasqua, who has over the course of eighteen months, handcrafted a unique series of bronze vine sculptures especially for the Dubai venue.
Robuchon’s protégée, Executive Chef Axel Manes, presides over the kitchen, offering healthy and seasonal ingredients, selected from over 100 different producers, favoring dishes with only a few elements, that allow the key ingredients to shine. Manes’ authentic cuisine sets the tone for a 2.0 version of Robuchon’s signature dishes.
During the week, guests looking for a lighter edit of the a la carte menu can select the Business Lunch menu, which incorporates Robuchon’s classics at AED 129. This daytime offering is available from Sundays through Thursdays, from 11.30am to 3.30pm, allowing guests to experience L’Atelier’s “cuisine a la minute”.
The restaurant is situated on the podium floor of Gate Village 11 in DIFC. There are 104 seats in the main dining area, while the terrace can host up to 68 guests.
