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.
