L’ATE­LIER DE JOËL ROBU­CHON A TAIPEI

Business Traveler (USA) - - INTERNATIONAL DESTINATION -

If there is a restau­rant by Robu­chon in town, you know there’s a culi­nary treat in store. Lo­cated on the fifth floor of up­scale shop­ping cen­ter Bellavita, this L’ate­lier branch is helmed by Xavier Boyer, who has worked for the leg­endary chef for 12 years. The look and feel of the restau­rant is con­sis­tent with its sis­ter venues glob­ally, and the food ad­heres to the French tech­nique Robu­chon is fa­mous for, although lo­cal vegetables and fish are some­times in­cor­po­rated. An ex­pe­ri­ence here starts from NT1,380 ($46.50) for amuse-bouche, ap­pe­tizer, main of your choice and dessert with tea or cof­fee. Dishes such as le melon with Parma ham, honeydew and figs, and le boeuf (beef cheeks braised in red wine) cost ex­tra. There is also a Salon de Thé de Joël Robu­chon on the third floor of the mall for high tea and pas­tries.
