What I really admire about Joel Robuchon is the great attention toward detail. Each dish was not only visually aesthetic, but also clearly required a lot of labor. His use of seasonal ingredients, presentation of plates, and decorative atmosphere clearly made this a very modern and delicious Christmas feast.
I would recommend dining at Le Jardin for any special occasion. The service is impeccable (even more impressive than usual because you're in Hong Kong), the tasting menus are thoughtful, and if you're not in Hong Kong, you can easily visit any of other Joel Robuchon's restaurants in major cities around the world. He's even making a return back to New York City!
