As every foodie knows, Joel Robuchon, who died in 2018, was one of the most significant chefs of the last quarter of the 20th century. In fact, he was the most Michelin-starred chef ever, holding a record 32 stars in 2016, and his disciples have opened restaurants all over the world in his style. Joel himself had outposts in numerous cities around the world, including beautiful L’Atelier in Tokyo.
Last November, the Robuchon restaurant group opened Comptoir Robuchon in Mayfair. The group had previously owned a restaurant in London, L’Atelier in Covent Garden, but it closed in anticipation of re-opening in Mayfair as Comptoir Robuchon. The executive chef of Comptoir Robuchon is Jeremy Page, who worked closely with Joel Robuchon at the original L’Atelier in Paris for 13 years, and Jeremy is largely responsible for this new offering.
