Finally Confirmed: Didier Elena Is New Chef at Adour Alain Ducasse


Back in March, when chef Joel Dennis left Adour Alain Ducasse, reps wouldn’t confirm the rumor we first reported, that his replacement would be Didier Elena, the Monaco-born chef who helped open Alain Ducasse at the Essex House in 2000 as chef de cuisine (and then went on to helm a couple of two-starred restaurants in France). Now the Daily News makes it official: Elena will attempt to win back the star lost under Dennis’s watch.
