Another Star Turn / NEWS HUNGRY

Hélène Darroze has been awarded the highly coveted second Michelin star for her eponymous restaurant, Hélène Darroze at the Connaught, making her the only female chef patron in the UK with two Michelin stars. Reinforcing the legendary Mayfair hotel’s 114-year-old legacy of fine dining, Darroze’s menu combines traditional produce from her native Les Landes in South West France coupled with some of the finest ingredients from the British Isles. Signature dishes include a ‘Fines de Claire’ oyster tartare with caviar from Sologne and a chilled velouté of white beans from Béarn, as well as a black and creamy Carnaroli Acquarello rice, line-caught calamari sautéed with confit tomato and chorizo, a jus with parsley and Parmegianno Reggiano foam. There’s something to suit everyone here; a weekday three-course set lunch at £35 per head or £42 including 2 glasses of wine, while the signature seven-course tasting menu is priced at £85 per head and the a la carte menus for both lunch and dinner are £75 per head. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday to Saturday, and brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday.
