ALAIN DUCASSE
New York

Like so many decorated restaurateurs, Alain Ducasse is infected with the expansion bug. In April the Alain Ducasse Group took over Benoit, one of the last, true Parisian bistros. But despite having locations in New York, Las Vegas, Paris, Tokyo and every else in-between, he’s been able to maintain the excellence at
Essex House. Spending an evening at Ducasse is more than having dinner in a multi-star restaurant. It’s an experience in the refinement of a lifestyle.
