Brand Snapshot | The Connaught
Each week we bring you the most up-to-date news, trends, campaigns, and launches from Walpole’s members. Today, the stunning new neighbourhood restaurant at The Connaught, headed up by internationally renowned chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
Internationally renowned chef Jean -Georges Vongerichten has opened his new restaurant, Jean-Georges at The Connaught, in one of London’s most distinguished hotels. Overlooking fashionable Mount Street in the heart of Mayfair the restaurant will offer informal dining throughout the day in a relaxed, contemporary, neighbourhood setting.
The eclectic menus at Jean-Georges at The Connaught are inspired by both Jean-Georges’ classic French training and signature use of Asian flavours, whilst also featuring his distinctive take on British classics from Fish & Chips to traditional afternoon tea, influenced by his earlier working life in London. Sourcing the best of British ingredients, the menus will reflect the simple farm to table fresh approach long pioneered by Jean-Georges, similar to his New York restaurants at The Mark, ABC Kitchen and most recently the pioneering vegan eatery ABCV.
Commentating on his opening at The Connaught Vongerichten said, “I am so excited to be returning to London at such a vibrant and dynamic time. I’m constantly travelling the world and it’s always the energy and diversity of this capital city that stimulates me most. The Connaught, the first hotel I ever visited in London holds a very special place in my heart, and I am honoured to play a part in its long culinary legacy”.
The new breakfast menu at Jean-Georges at The Connaught will feature his signature healthy morning shakes, acai bowls and dosa while of course still offering Connaught classics of truffle scrambled eggs, French brioche toast and the Full English. Lunch and dinner will feature Jean-Georges classics from Egg Toast & Caviar to Crispy Salmon Sushi and his legendary Black Truffle and Fontina Pizza, which for the first time in The Connaught’s history will also come as a take-away.
