What's This?
Prev1 of 2Next

French-born chef Alain Ducasse, the first chef to get three-Michelin stars at three of his restaurants in different locations, plans to close Adour, his five-year-old restaurant located at the St. Regis New York.

The final dinners at the struggling restaurant are slated for November 17. Ducasse’s Adour in the St. Regis in Washington will remain open.

Grub Street notes that Adour’s closing, along with the closure of Joël Robuchon’s New York restaurant back in July, is yet another blow to a certain kind of white-tablecloth fine dining that Grub describes as “opulent French spots from hugely successful chefs operated in hotels.”

The New York Times commented that in 2007, Ducasse moved and renamed his high-end New York flagship, which had been called Alain Ducasse at the Essex House, to the stately room that was Lespinasse.
