L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

Renowned chef Joël Robuchon developed an innovative culinary concept: to offer top-drawer gourmet food that excites all the senses and serve it in a friendly and unpretentious environment. From Paris to London, Hong Kong to Las Vegas, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon draws gourmet aficionados from all over the world. It’s your turn to discover authentic and refined cuisine that ingeniously combines the flavours of exceptional products that are prepared and served in all simplicity.

A chef at the summit of his craft innovates, surprises and reinvents classic cuisine.

Joël Robuchon

Joël Robuchon worked in several French establishments before opening his first restaurant in Paris, in 1981. He was awarded his first Michelin star during first year of operation, followed by a second and third star in each consecutive year. Three years, three stars: a first in the gourmet world. In 1994, he opened the first restaurant bearing his name. The driving force of his work has been adapted to a variety of restaurant concepts and exceptional tables, tea rooms and pastry shops. This chef’s philosophy remained faithful to one goal: creating a cuisine that is sublime in its simplicity. At the time of this writing, he had received more Michelin stars than any other chef in the world.

Jean-Pierre Curtat

Director of L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Executive Chef at the Casino de Montréal

Culinary artist and outstanding manager? The two identities live in harmony within Jean-Pierre Curtat. A builder at heart, Jean-Pierre has been orchestrating the Casino de Montréal's restaurant offer since it opened. He has managed the prestigious Nuances restaurant, which had a five-Diamond rating from 2000 to 2010.

Jean-Pierre Curtat is without a doubt an extraordinary ambassador of L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. He has always been attracted to L'Atelier's sophisticated yet friendly atmosphere, its refined dishes and its kitchen that opens to the dining room. Guided by his love of wine, he has helped create a wine list with carefully selected bottles. Harmony and discovery guaranteed!    

Éric Gonzalez

Executive Chef

With his own reputation already well-established, Éric Gonzalez has all the qualities to honour Joël Robuchon. He earned his first Michelin star when he was only 27 years old. He is a member of the prestigious Association des Maîtres Cuisiniers de France and a leader in gourmet circles in France and Québec. In Montréal, he directed the kitchens of several well-known establishments, including Auberge Saint-Gabriel.  He also authored a cookbook entitled Audaces : façon Éric Gonzalez.

Renowned chef, Éric is unquestionably a master of his art. His cuisine is made up of paradoxes and contrasts with combinations of the traditional and contemporary. A true artist, Éric Gonzalez has an uncommon ability to communicate his taste for the beautiful and delicious.

With L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, Éric renders in a delectable manner the simply sublime, signature of chef Robuchon. Have a seat at a table of discovery, emotions and ingenuity.

Benjamin Oddo

Pastry chef and baker

Benjamin Oddo found his path early in life. Since then, his passion for baking and pastry-making has drawn him from one side of the ocean to the other: Toulouse, Saint-Émilion, then Chicoutimi, Sherbrooke, Gatineau. He worked in many establishments before becoming, at only 23 years of age, the pastry chef at Le Baccara, the prestigious Five-Diamond rated restaurant at the Casino du Lac-Leamy. 

He’s now coming to Montréal, where he will put his talent to good use creating breads and desserts at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. His attention to detail and love of fine foods, Mr. Robuchon’s signature theme, will come through in every bite. Just think: honey, balsam fir, wild rose and Québec berries as natural, delicately flavoured starters, or desserts that bring together frank yet balanced contrasting flavours.

Just as his colleague Eric Gonzalez, Benjamin Oddo wishes to deliver exceptional dishes. Expect the ultimate flavourful experience, from first bite to dessert.

Jean-Michel Cartier

Maître D

In order to interpret theory according to your own personality, you must first master it. That’s what Jean-Michel Cartier does. Having earned various certifications and worked at the prestigious Europea restaurant for a few years, he uses his knowledge in a very personal, friendly and warm manner.

His passion for wine stewardship is strongly tied to his interest in people. He chose this career because he believes wines must deliver their own special tasting experience and is inspired by the story of the humans who made them and the customers with whom he shares wonderful discoveries. Follow his lead and enjoy the adventure!
