Esteemed two Michelin starred, Hélène Darroze at The Connaught has re-opened its doors after a comprehensive refurbishment. Chef Hélène has re-imagined the dining room, kitchen and menu, with a stunning new Chef’s Table, show kitchen and dedicated Armagnac Room.
With the new menu, each dining experience will commence with a seasonal consommé to softly cleanse the palate. Curious guests can select ingredients from specific regions, for example, Pigeon – Denbighshire Wales, or Cep – Scotland, even where possible, naming the exact boats that land the fish such as Turbot – The Ajax, Cornwall. Regular changes will also be made to the menu to react to changes in the British weather and micro-seasons, allowing for further experimentation and versatility.
Elegance and style go hand in hand with The Connaught so when it came to selecting the dining pieces, independent ceramicist Ema Pradere was commissioned to supply the hand-thrown consommé bowls to start each meal whilst iconic French fashion house Hermès was chosen for their Bleu D’Ailleurs tea and coffee service to finish.
