The Million Dollar Kitchen

There are many things one can spend a million dollars on. A kitchen isn’t the first thing to come to mind. However, for Rob Feenie, owner and executive chef of Lumiere, spending $1.2 million on a new kitchen for his flagship restaurant was a no brainer. What kind of kitchen do you get for a million smackers? One with a lot of stainless steel and a custom designed Bonnet stove from France.

I’m sure a real chef will appreciate the above picture. I will just appreciate dining at Lumiere. However, at the prices Lumiere charges, you won’t see me there every night.

    Hi John,
    Man I dont know.
    I guess its a nice kitchen but it looks like the place is more suited for performing autopsies than cranking out foie gras.You sure thats not the local morgue?
    Im kidding ofcourse but if I had a million to spend on a kitchen I think id go a little cozier.

    This kitchen gives me some pointers as we are in the process of designing a new house. For a chef, the kitchen above is practical and not-so-frilly. However it still appears rather industrial. For me, while I love the stainless steel appearance, I need some type of ambience and warmth. The above is too “cold” for me.
