L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, a two-time winner in the Best Dining Experience category at the Singapore Experience Awards (2012 and 2013), is a unique dining concept where chefs experiment and create, working on new ideas and fusing different concepts reflective of the locale.
This presentation immerses guests in a dining experience where guests are part of the action, separated by a counter between kitchen and main dining area. Mr Robuchon has likened L'Atelier to an artist's studio, where diners can witness chefs create, prepare and cook innovative dishes right before them, and chefs have the pleasure of watching diners enjoy their meal. Consequently, the level of interaction between chefs and diners will be heightened, encouraging the chefs to better their craft. What Mr Robuchon wants to convey at L'Atelier is the atmosphere of conviviality that lets diners relax, be liberated and enjoy a great meal.
The L'Atelier interior décor lies in the hands of world-renowned designer Pierre-Yves Rochon who designed the first L'Atelier in Paris in 2003. Kitted out entirely in black and red furnishings to streamline the signature dramatic sleek look for the Atelier concept, the restaurant also dresses its servers in black. The a la carte menu offers classic and tasting portions, with a focus on presenting premium ingredients in their simplest form to flesh out the essence of the produce.
German native Lorenz Hoja helms the kitchen of L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon as Chef de Cuisine. With grand ambitions, he had one of his dreams fulfilled when he met Mr.Robuchon and worked for him in the two-Michelin-star Atelier in London from September 2006 to March 2009, and later a brief stint in the French Atelier (also rated two-Michelin-star) in 2010, before arriving on our shores.
This is his first foray into Asia, having previously worked in several Relais & Château establishments in Europe and South Africa. He inherited the love for cooking from his grandparents, who taught him to fish and pick mushrooms, while stressing the importance of using fresh produce at the stoves, which has become a cornerstone of his work ethic.
To build up the L’Atelier brand in Resorts World™ Sentosa, one of Chef Hoja’s objectives is to introduce the Atelier concept to guests around the region and drive the message that fine dining is not always stereotyped as stiff and formal.
