EspeletteTucked away inside London's legendary Connaught Hotel, Espelette is a relaxed bistro-style restaurant with sweeping views of Mayfair's Mount Street. Open throughout the day, it offers a selection of H?l?ne Darroze's signature dishes inspired by the town of Espelette and the South West of France. The lunch, dinner and all-day dining menus feature Gallic favourites like fish soup with garlic croutons; lobster salad with crispy celeriac; and chicken stuffed with wild mushrooms with sauce poulette. The three course Menu du Jour offers excellent value for money and features simple, seasonal brasserie fare - perfect for low-key business lunches. The restaurant also serves breakfast and traditional afternoon tea so you really can pop in at any time to indulge in some fine wine and first class food.
