Squaremeal Review of Helene Darroze at The Connaught ?

The Connaught is, of course, already a world apart from the street outside. Step into the grandeur of its dining room and you're even further removed, amid oak panels, flashes of contemporary colour and chairs too splendid for one person to use without assistance. But while diners may be coddled, they're not spoon-fed – especially when it comes to the brief dish descriptions on the menu. It might not be clear exactly where Darroze will head with 'calamari, chard, capers and Parmesan' or 'plum, coriander and almond', but refinement, playfulness and the flavours of her native Sud-Ouest will always be in evidence. Whether it's risotto gilded with white truffle or "perfect" scallops with carrot, citrus and tandoori spices, the produce is exceptional, although prices and supplements can be difficult to swallow. One reader offers a "big, big bravo" for the team's can-do approach to younger customers, while grown-ups can appreciate the serious and enticing, but enthusiastically marked-up wine list. "Fine dining at its very best", concludes an admirer.

    The Square 8211; Sam The Food Fan :: HÉLÈNE DARROZE AT THE CONNAUGHT - Two Michelin Star Experiment – Sam The Food Fan

    Hélène Darroze is a fourth generation chef in her family and according to Wikipedia, she was the inspiration for the character Collette in the Pixar movie Ratatouille. If that isn’t cool enough, she holds two Michelin stars at her London restaurant and won the San Pellegrino Best Female Chef award in 2015. She is an inspiring woman and when picking a restaurant for our two star Michelin experiment, it was an easy choice.

    Located in the beautiful Connaught Hotel, we were warmly greeted by every member of staff we passed by. The dining room oozes class and even though it was a pretty gloomy day outside, inside...

Hélène Darroze at the Connaught

Three generations of the Darroze family were chefs at their restaurant in Landes, but Hélène – a business graduate – didn’t follow suit until Alain Ducasse persuaded her out of the office at Le Louis XV in Monaco and into the kitchen. She now commutes across the Channel, maintaining standards at Hélène Darroze at The Connaught in London and Restaurant Hélène Darroze in Paris (the former has two Michelin stars, the latter now has one).
