Adour Alain Ducasse
New York, NY 10022
Hours: Tue-Thu 6pm-10pm; Fri-Sat 6pm-10:30pm
Nearing the end of its fifth year at the St. Regis, Adour proves once again that Alain Ducasse is synonymous with culinary luxury. What comes out of the kitchen of Adour is nuanced, sophisticated modern French cuisine, laced with a few winks to the unapologetically fabulous—thanks to Chef de Cuisine Julien Jouhannaud. Desserts from 2008 New York Rising Star Pastry Chef Sandro Micheli follow the elegance with thoughtfully executed whimsy, as in his ever-evolving Strawberry Composition. The interior of the restaurant is similarly subdued, rejecting the grandiose and decorative for a softer, viticulture-inspired update on classic luxury.
