In news so important that it simply cannot wait for the Wire, Jennifer Baum's L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon will be soft-opening on August 8. That is right, friends, in a mere 7 days the famed three-Michelin-starred Frenchman Joël Robuchon will be cooking on 57th Street. Holy. Mother.
Madame Snack also has the details, which JB herself have confirmed to Eater, but here is what you need to know: Mr. Robuchon will soft open for the first time in NY on 8/8; full-on Four Seasons lobby throw-down just after Labor Day. No reservations yet, but that don't mean Bruni ain't already on the line with the Four Seasons front desk: 212-758-5700.
