Thats interesting, most of the things I've read about JR site his potatoes as being his star maker. Well I have to say that those potatoes really were the best thing I ate!!!!

btw, desserts....we had a chocolate cream and really, it tasted like Jello pudding.

Well I guess he does need to reinvent once in a while -- cauliflower was done 20 years ago.

Just returned from a week in Paris. Had dinner one night at L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon. STAY AWAY It is a tourist trap for food snobs. The food is over salted and over priced; the staff is unhelpful and the service condescending at best; the ambiance is stiff and terribly cold and it is a very poor value. The food was not very good and would you believe: iceberg lettuce in a salad. The portions are small and the prices are large. There are much better places in Paris for food quality and almost every place in Paris has better value. You should only go there if money is no object, you believe in dining as a religious experience and you consider yourself a snobby foodie.

So I guess it was a blessing in disguise they turned me away a few months ago.
