Hélène Darroze at The Connaught

From the food to the surroundings, Hélène Darroze at The Connaught is a feast for the senses. Intimate and innovative in equal measure, the restaurant deservedly holds two Michelin stars - every dish an exquisite creation.

Each day begins with the arrival of carefully selected ingredients. Hélène’s network of suppliers, cultivated over years of working together, provide only the best, seasonal produce. Then it’s into the kitchen to craft a menu that showcases the taste and texture of each ingredient.

It’s an experience built on trust. The trust Hélène places in her suppliers to provide exceptional produce. And the trust that diners have in Hélène’s culinary skill, as they select from a simple list of ingredients, and wait for the magic to begin.

To complete the picture, this thrilling expression of French culinary craft plays out in truly elegant surroundings. India Mahdavi’s sophisticated interior invites you to relax and let your gaze wander to the Damien Hirst artwork on the wall. Glass cloches celebrate the visual beauty of the ingredients found in Hélène’s cooking. After all, it is said that we eat first with the eyes.
