Fodor's Expert Review Hélène Darroze at The Connaught
The city's wealthy flock to French virtuoso Hélène Darroze's restaurant at The Connaught for her dazzling regional French haute cuisine, served up in a stylish Edwardian wood-paneled dining salon. Taking inspiration from the Les Landes region in southwestern France, Darroze sallies forth with a procession of magnificent dishes, like Robert Dupérier foie gras with fig and port and Limousin sweetbreads with Jerusalem artichokes. Spit-roasted Racan pigeon comes gloriously pink and the Pyrenean lamb is served en rognonade (with its kidneys).
