Darroze Crosses the Channel

    Chef Hélène Darroze, whose eponymous Left Bank restaurant recently received its second Michelin star, has opened a bistro in London’s newly renovated Connaught hotel. Hélène Darroze at the Connaught reflects the chef’s passion for produce from her native southwest France, coupled with local ingredients from London’s best butchers and cheese makers. The restaurant’s wine list, opened with just under 900 references, including 44 vintages from 1904-1994, is poised to grow to 2,000 references. Darroze, a fourth-generation chef, worked alongside Paris’ beloved Alain Ducasse in Monte Carlo before opening Hélène Darroze in Paris in 1999. Her bistro at the Connaught will feature a seven-course tasting menu for about $177. (www.the-connaught.co.uk)
