Michelin Three Stars: Joel Robuchon Restaurant ラ ターブル ドゥ ジョエル・ロブション
The Joel Robuchon Restaurant in Tokyo's Ebisu district serves French cuisine.
Joel Robuchon Restaurant is one of three Michelin-starred Joel Robuchon restaurants, and the only three-star Joel Robuchon establishment, in Japan. The other two are L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon (two Michelin stars) in Roppongi Hills, Tokyo, and La Table de Joel Robuchon (two Michelin stars) in the Yebisu Garden Palace complex.
Joel Robuchon Restaurant is part of Le Chateau Restaurant Joel Robuchon: a complex of Joel Robuchon eateries, a bar and a patisserie, that occupies three above-ground floors and an underground floor of Yebisu Garden Palace (a reconstructed French chateau) in Yebisu Garden Place in Ebisu.
The Joel Robuchon experience is all about swank and glitz, and Joel Robuchon Restaurant lives up to that promise splendidly. Joel Robuchon Restaurant is on the second floor of Yebisu Garden Palace, which it shares with the Rouge Bar.
The Joel Robuchon Restaurant is plushly decorated in champage gold, with Baccarat chandeliers and crystal-studded walls.
Joel Robuchon is famous for his cuisine actuelle, in which the food is made to taste of itself, rather than the excessive titivating and minimalization of nouvelle cuisine. If you equate nouvelle cuisine with contemporary, then you may not find the Joel Robuchon Restaurant as contemporary as Michelin suggests. Nevertheless, the French cuisine of the Joel Robuchon Restaurant reflects its elegant simplicity the Japanese influence Robuchon is known for.
Dining at the Joel Robuchon Restaurant is an experience that wows all five senses with that sense of being Michelin three star.
The Joel Robuchon Restaurant serves both lunch and dinner.
Reservations should be made through the Le Chateau Restaurant Joel Robuchon Tokyo website (see below).
