EaterWire: Robuchon Actually Cooking, Studio B Opening up Roof, The Look of Hundred Acres, Have Lunch with Ruth Reichl

MIDTOWN— We've all heard that Robuchon was in town, but Kate Krader from Food & Wine reports that he's actually cooking behind the counter: "...when Joël Robuchon comes to cook at his Four Seasons Hotel restaurant, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, for a few days, it's absolutely impossible not to be blown away to another planet. Every single thing is deceptively simple and amazing, from the tiny baguette basket that they set down after you've ordered to a stellar version of tarte flambé...everyone should head straight for L'Atelier, get a seat at the counter and watch him in action." [F&W]

GREENPOINT— Studio B's website is announcing the opening of their new rooftop garden: "Studio B is opening a rooftop garden on May 2, just in time for Spring! To celebrate the event we’re planning a blow-out, throw-down featuring Brazilian Girls, Spank Rock, The Rub, DJ Roxy Cottontail and more tba! Tickets on sale today. So come join us as we unveil our Greenpoint oasis." [Studio B via Cutlets]

SOHO— We get some more info from the Marc Meyer camp on the new project Hundred Acres: "...the space will combine an overall light, airy feel with crisp finishes, organic colors and natural woods. Classic white subway tiles will cover much of the walls in the bar area to evoke the feel of an old-time butcher shop...Chef Meyer will run the kitchen with Joel Hough, who is currently the Chef de Cuisine of Cookshop. The rustic American menu will be crafted daily based on the market’s freshest selections, and will be served seven days a week. Approximately 15 dishes at affordable prices will sate all appetites."

WORLD WIDE WEB— New York Women in Communications is hosting their annual online auction and there's something for you foodies there: "Lunch for four with Gourmet magazine Editor-in-Chief Ruth Reichl in the Condé Nast café – plus a tour of the Gourmet test kitchen and photo studio." Sure she's not taking you to Adour, but it's still one of the top items on the auction block (being an intern for a day at COSMOGirl is one of the other options). [EaterWire]
