    • Hélène Darroze at The Connaught

      In the beautiful surroundings of Hélène Darroze’s two Michelin-starred restaurant at The Connaught, her lifelong passion for the finest produce and incredible skill is reflected in every aspect of one of Mayfair’s most intimate dining experiences.

      Each day, Hélène selects the very best and freshest ingredients from the network of suppliers she has spent a lifetime gathering, and cooks them with precision, honesty and passion. The resulting menu celebrates the tastes and textures of the most stunning individual produce, prepared in a way that allows each ingredient to shine.

      At the heart of this whole experience is trust. It starts with the trust that Hélène places in her suppliers, to provide her with exceptional produce, of impeccable seasonality and provenance. And it extends to the diners, who place their trust in Hélène’s culinary skill by selecting from the simple list of exceptional ingredients available that day, to be served as a succession of impeccably realised dishes.

      The result is a thrilling expression of French culinary craft, delivered with a contemporary flourish, enjoyed in a truly elegant setting. India Mahdavi’s calm, sophisticated interior and a specially commissioned glasswork installation celebrating the visual beauty of the ingredients found in Hélène’s cooking complete what is a feast for the eyes and nourishment for the soul.
