Third time lucky for Alain Ducasse in New York?

AdourWorld-renowned chef Alain Ducasse has opened a French restaurant in the Big Apple, with a focus on wine. Adour at The St. Regis, New York is named after the river in southwest France where Ducasse was born, and where he had his first culinary inspirations. Traditional French cooking will be accompanied by an interactive goatskin wine bar that offers a cutting-edge approach to delight both novice and experienced wine-lovers. David Rockwell is the man behind the design of the 70-seater restaurant which includes, among other things,  such details as designer dining chairs that safely and conspicuously hold ladies’ handbags. Ducasse will be hoping for ‘third time lucky’ in Manhattan,  looking to succeed where  Mix and Alain Ducasse at Essex House didn’t.
