The house of faith for vegetables. Probably the most divisive restaurant, L’Arpège is a place where you’d either love or hate, no in-between. As a loyal fan of the popular series Chef’s Table I came across chef Alain Passard’s 3 Michelin-star restaurant for the first time. His passion for cooking could be easily noticed in the episode, which showed how he began gaining recognition with meat dishes and afterwards found his calling with vegetables.
