Alternatives to L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon

turlendu | Aug 27, 2011 07:12 AM

My very high-end clients are spending three nights in Paris. I wish to provide a varied dining program, so have booked Le Cinq for an unforgettable classic Parisian dining experience and also Josephine Chez Dumonet for a classic Bistro experience. The obvious third choice in my mind is something more on the contemporary side. The obvious choice for me was L'Atelier de JR, but these clients don't want to dine at 6:30 or wait for a table otherwise, so I'm searching for alternatives, but I don't want anything too trendy or too inventive. While I value concierge input, I realize the bias. Moreover, I know many French (particular in the hospitality industry) simply REFUSE to provide real opinions (they'll just say, "Well, these two restaurants are very different."). Here's what the concierge of their five-star hotel gave me for alternatives to L'Atelier de JR. COMMENTS? Of course, I'm open to other suggestions. THANKS HOUNDS!

Spoon Food & Wine: Not wild about a Ducasse concept restaurant.

Market: probably too trendy

Dominique Bouchet*: I'm quite interested in this one based on the chef's pedigree.

39 V:

L’ Arôme*
