Located in the chic London neighborhood of Mayfair, Hélène Darroze at The Connaught is a culinary reference, not only in the U.K. but also worldwide. This past October saw the inauguration of a new space—along with a new menu—to celebrate the restaurant’s 10th anniversary. Designed by Paris-based interior architect Pierre Yovanovitch, the interiors reflect a balance between tradition and modernity with a feminine touch to pay tribute to the chef’s spirit. “The design of the restaurant is, in many ways, a reflection of Hélène’s cuisine, with elegance and exceptional, locally-sourced quality at the core of the space,” says Yovanovitch.

The interior combines handworked woods, ceramics, blown glass as well as contemporary craft techniques, all custom-made from artisan makers located throughout Europe.” The existing dark wood paneling was lightened while the plasterwork was transformed with a warm pink gradient color. Banquette seating is upholstered in leather and velvet; custom tables are made of oak and ceramic with a lacquered metal base, and ceiling lights feature hand-blown glass and wrought iron lacquered in blue. In addition to the main dining space, Yovanovitch also created a new Armagnac Room and chef’s table food and wine-pairing area adorned with terrazzo flooring, contemporary light oak wood paneling, a fresco commissioned to artist Rochegaussen and lamps by Matteo Gonet.
