Two Michelin starred restaurant Hélène Darroze at The Connaught has re-opened with a new look. Words by Reyhaan Day.



After an extensive two-month refurbishment, two Michelin starred Hélène Darroze at The Connaught is back in business. 

The dining room, kitchen and menu have been reimagined by Paris-based interior architect Pierre Yovanovitch.

A particular highlight is the installation of a new, 10-seat chef’s table complete with oak panelled walls, bespoke lamps and a pink marble tabletop.



The dining room sees deep tones and rich textiles set against a newly light-filled space.

Find customised flooring, oak tables and bespoke curved velvet and leather banquettes and chairs. Above hangs a hand-blown glass chandelier.

Menus will be changed more frequently, in line with the British seasons – putting the spotlight on the country’s best producers and suppliers.

Hélène Darroze at The Connaught is at Carlos Place.
