Hélène Darroze at The Connaught

From personally tailored menus to the artfully designed dining room, Hélène Darroze at The Connaught is an elegant expression of craft.

In our three Michelin-star restaurant, each dish is grounded in seasonal produce sourced from the farmers, makers and growers carefully chosen by Hélène. And every menu is a reflection of your personal tastes, as our chefs transform your selected ingredients into original works of culinary art.

Pierre Yovanovitch’s cocooning interior sets the perfect tone for this intimate dining experience. Blush shades, curved lines, and deep velvet and leather seating reflect the restaurant’s warm, approachable ethos. A blue blown-glass chandelier and exposed wooden tabletops add a bold, contemporary edge. Almost every element is custom-made, once again placing craftsmanship in the limelight.

Contemporary Additions

Specially commissioned and designed to fit amongst the ornate wood wall panelling, are two beautiful collages by Damien Hirst, Xanadu 2008 and Shangri-La 2008. Depicting a cluster of butterflies laid out symmetrically or in concentric circles and set in white gloss paint, these works symbolise the power and beauty of nature.
