Group Executive Chef, Joël Robuchon International

Chef David Alves, born in Saint-Cloud, discovered his culinary passion early on through his mother’s culinary creativity. Starting his journey at ‘Plaza Athénée’ in Paris, he fell in love with excellence in high-end gastronomy.

Joining the Robuchon family at L’Astor, he quickly rose to sous-chef, then took part in launching L’Atelier Robuchon. Promoted to Chef at La Table de Joël Robuchon, he maintained its two Michelin stars.

Leading the second Atelier opening in Paris to similar success, he then took on the challenge of L’Atelier in Hong Kong, preserving its three Michelin stars. Honored by Mr. Robuchon’s legacy, after 22 years, Chef David now serves as Group Executive Chef at JRI, ensuring the evolution of the culinary industry.
