Fine dining on a budget

Ladies and gents, Saturday lunch at JOËL ROBUCHON RESTAURANT awaits


Feasting like a chi-chi gourmand doesn’t come cheap, obviously. But wise epicureans know that lunching at a fine-diner is a thing of beauty — it costs a fraction of a typical dinner bill at the same establishment. Case in point: Joël Robuchon Restaurant’s Weekend Set Lunch.

It offers three menus for various appetites: three courses for $78, four for $98, and five for $118. (Dinner here will set you back over $400 per person). And what’s lovely is that you can build your own lunch from a rather comprehensive list of dishes. While the appetisers and main courses were competently prepared, what we appreciated most during our tasting were the swanky frills.
