What is the cheese course like at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

At L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, you can expect to see some fine cheeses on both the tasting and the à la carte menu. The Four-Star French restaurant and its Five-Star sister restaurant next door, Joël Robuchon, have a similar selection of fine imported cheese from France as well as domestic cheeses from the United States. There’s a good range of sheep’s, goat’s and cow’s milk cheeses at both restaurants, but you’ll have to go to Joël Robuchon for the cart — it’s not available at L’Atelier.

When you order the $95 menu club, there is a cheese course included, as well as a selection available à la carte. There’s usually a specialty cheese with a spread available, too, such as the Abbaye de Belloc sheep’s cheese with black cherry marmalade — the rich, dense, almost caramel-flavored cheese is still made in the traditional manner by monks at the abbey of Notre Dame de Belloc in France.
