Joël Robuchon’s empire expands again with the opening of another Atelier, this time on the Champs Elysées. This one is bigger than the left bank outpost, with an actual dining room in addition to the trademark counter seating.

- New 2* designations: Passage 53, L’Atelier Etoile de Joël Robuchon, and Jean-François Piège.
- New 1* designations: Frédéric Simonin, Les Ambassadeurs, Le Baudelaire, Sensing, Antoine, and Le Fourchette de Printemps.
- Deletions: La Table de Joël Robuchon (now closed) and Montparnasse 25.
