At The Luxe, we also offer fusion recipes on our menu, such as blending Korean and French food.
David Chang is one of the best-known chefs in New York for his Korean cooking. He has just opened a tiny restaurant in the city called Danji, which serves a menu of traditional and modern small plates featuring such delicacies as fried rock shrimp tempura, japchae, and barbecue pork belly sliders. He promotes the cuisine at Danji as Korean flavors with French technique.
He thinks that French formation is still very important today, s most of the great chefs are classically French-trained. This doesn't apply to Asian food in general, where they have their own techniques but not scientific recipes. With Asian food it tends to be more about tradition then technique, but since Chang didn't grow up with the experience of cooking Korean food, he used his French training to create recipes that were a fusion of the two.
We believe in providing customers with new experiences. There are many traditional French restaurants in the area but we hope The Luxe offers something new. Our chef, Luc, has travelled all the way from the Dordogne during his career but has also been across the world and brought his traditional French style to other nationalities' cuisines.
Do get in touch if you have any questions or wish to make a reservation.
