As we told you back in March, Julien Jouhannaud took over the kitchen at Adour Alain Ducasse after former chef Didier Elena split the month before. With the changing of the guard comes a total overhaul of the menu, which reps tell us will make its debut tonight. From the look of things, Jouhannaud, who was previously at the helm of Ducasse’s Washington, D.C. Adour outpost, is taking a simpler, more straightforward approach than his predecessor did. Expect things like asparagus with creamed morels, langoustines in Chardonnay nage, and salmon in a classic sauce matelote (a combination of seafood stock and red wine). Will the new menu be enough to help Adour regain some of its lost cachet, and possibly that second Michelin star it dropped back in 2009? That’s for diners to decide, but for the time being, you can check out a few of the new dishes in our slideshow, and grab a first look at the full menu, below.
