Hélène Darroze at the Connaught
Hélène Darroze at the Connaught Review
London's crème de la crème flock to French virtuoso Hélène Darroze at the exclusive Connaught hotel for her dazzling regional French haute cuisine, all served up in an impressive Edwardian wood-paneled dining salon sumptiously kitted out by Parisian It-designer India Mahdavi. Taking inspiration from Les Landes in southwest France, Darroze sallies forth with a procession of magical dishes. Caviar d'Acquitaine wows with oyster tartare in a sleek Martini glass, topped with black caviar jelly and white haricot bean velouté. Spit-roasted and flambéed pigeon is served gloriously pink, with duck foie gras and mini–Brussels sprouts. To finish, choose pear jelly or apple compote with black Sawarak pepper cream. Darroze may be perfect for celebrations but beware the high prices: £35 for lunch, £55 for Sat. brunch, and £80 to £115 for dinner.
