At L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon, we enter a whole new realm of fine dining. After shocking the culinary world with his retirement at 50 years of age, Mr Joël Robuchon returned to the kitchen with the idea to create L'Atelier. Drawing inspiration from the simplicity of Japanese cuisine and the vibrant atmosphere in Spanish tapas bars, the Atelier, meaning "workshop", was born. "This concept has convinced me that its informality and conviviality, where you can have just one dish or a whole dinner, is the way people want to eat today. In addition, you have the theatrical aspect, of being able to watch the food prepared." – Joël Robuchon on L'Atelier.

The PUTIEN brand traces its roots to its namesake city of Putian – a beautiful coastal suburb in Fujian, with rich cultural history and storied tradition since its settlement over almost one and a half millennium ago. It is, after all, the birthplace of the goddess Mazu and the fabled Southern Shaolin Kungfu, among many other legendary tales.
Seated against majestic mountains and facing the vast ocean, Putian is blessed with bountiful harvests from land and sea. Its humble people offered only their best produce to honour God, ancestors and country. Every precious yam plucked from the earth; every prized yield of seaweed; every tug and pull to produce the world’s best vermicelli; these were heartfelt toils born of modesty and moving sentimentality.
Modern Putian cuisine therefore carries the essence of its people from ages past – unpretentious, simple and pure.
