Fodor's Expert Review Hélène Darroze

$$$$ St-Germain-des-Pres French

The most celebrated female chef in Paris is now cooking at the Connaught in London, but her St-Germain dining room is still the setting for her sophisticated take on southwestern French food. Darroze's intriguingly modern touch comes through in such dishes as a sublime duck-foie-gras confit served with an exotic-fruit chutney or a blowout of roast wild duck stuffed with foie gras and truffles. At its best, the food lives up to the very high prices, but for a sampling without the wallet shock, the €28 eight-course tapas lunch menu, served in the plush red salon, is one of the best deals in town.
