One of Mayfair’s Finest: Hélène Darroze at The Connaught

Hélène Darroze at The Connaught is a uniquely personal experience, with no less than two Michelin stars. From the hand, heart and heritage of Hélène and her family of suppliers, exclusive hand-selected ingredients are chosen by you, nurtured by Hélène, and turned into an enchanting dining experience that reconnects you with the pleasures and joys of eating well. Her lifelong passion for creating fine culinary dishes and unique style translate to this being one of Mayfair’s most intimate dining experience.

Each day, Hélène selects the finest and freshest ingredients from a network of trusted 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
