Double comeback of the giants: Alain Ducasse and Albert Adrià open a restaurant together

By: Reading Time: < 1 Minute

Two superstars are combining their powers. Michelin-starred chefs Alain Ducasse and Albert Adrià have announced their plans to open a restaurant together at the end of this year. Here’s how this spectacular joint venture came about.

A few weeks ago, a somewhat vague Instagram post made by French Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse caused quite a stir. A “unique gastronomic adventure” is about to begin. The stunning news comes just a few months after both restaurateurs made headlines for closures. Due to the impact of Corona pandemic, Adrià had to close down his gastro-empire elBarri in April. Following a fight with management, Ducasse left the Parisian gourmet temple Athenée.

“Do you want to have some fun?” is what Ducasse reportedly asked Adrià, the 51-year-old creative mastermind. The answer to such a question can really only be “yes, of course”. And thus the spark was lit for a gastro project that will undoubtedly draw everyone’s attention once it kicks off. After all, how often do you get two of the world’s most influential chefs working together on something like this?

100-day trial period for Alain Ducasse and Albert Adrià

Specifics about the restaurant are still not clear. What we do know so far is that reservations will be accepted starting at the end of August, and that the project will initially run for 100 days on a trial basis in pop-up restaurant style.

“Precisely 31 years ago, Albert Adrià had traveled to Monaco to taste my cuisine at Le Louis XV, which had just been awarded three Michelin stars,” the 64-year-old Ducasse wrote on social media. “After all this time, I am very happy to find him again in Paris, alongside Romain Meder, to offer you a unique gastronomic adventure!” He will reveal more about the project in the weeks to come.


Alain Ducasse has now published more details about the new restaurant on Instagram:
