You mean you don’t hang out with Joel Robuchon and Mitsuo Endo at lunch, doing vertical tastings of Chateau Pape Clement with winemaker Bernard Magrez on a typical Wednesday afternoon?

  1. It’s really a shame that you have this platform with which you could share your culinary discoveries in a city that needs a roadmap to navigate through the good and the bad, but instead your message gets lost as you stroke your own ego.

  2. Oh please, the man does a very good job of keeping us informed, remember your mother’s words, if you can’t say something nice…

  3. If dining at a Robuchon establishment and then recording one’s experience results in a perception that the author is stroking his ego, then my head must be a lot bigger than my backside–which is quite wide.

    I’ve dined ala Robuchon, and I’ve eaten with and visited with Chef Robuchon. Like ELV, I’ve written about and photographed the work of Robuchon and his staff. It is hard to argue with near perfection. So if, in the opinion of some, the written word comes across as an act of overly indulgent ego stroking when describing lunch at Robuchon, such is life.
