Julien Dumas succeeds Alain Senderens at Lucas Carton

Lucas Carton

The Restaurant Senderens has, with the retirement of the eponymous chef Alain Senderens, reverted to its previous incarnation: Lucas Carton. We’ve been hearing rumblings since January about Senderens retiring and passing the reigns to chef Julien Dumas.

Alain Senderens, now 74 years old, made his name at the restaurant L’Archistrate where he won, between 1968-1978, all three Michelin stars. He took over the kitchens of Lucas Carton in 1985 and brought that restaurant to three-star status, before “handing back his stars” in 2005, re-baptizing the restaurant in his own name, and lowering the prices.

According to the website (we haven’t yet been), prices at Lucas Carton now range from 35-44€ for a starter, and 51-83€ for a mains. The restaurant upstairs, formerly known as Bar le Passage, has been renamed as Le Marché du Lucas and, like before, features a lower price point – 44€ at lunch and 51€ at dinner.
