Had a pretty amazing dinner last night - yesterday I had planned to go to lunch at the Robuchon in Macau with my friend for lunch but it was full and we ended up eating Chinese food; before I set out the disappointment from not grabbing a seat there made me try reservations at l'atelier for dinner, and 'all they had' was bar seating. Got there, ordered a ton of classics, got a bottle of ruinart rose, and everything was good. Then I look up and this older white man behind the counter is coming towards me- I realize it's Joel Robuchon himself, coming to shake my hand. I had no idea he was even in the house last night and I've missed any other chances to meet him, so a great surprise. He is, as one would expect, incredibly friendly and hospitable.
