Restaurant Hélène Darroze

Modern French in St-Germain & Les Invalides

Female star chefs are a rarity in Paris, but Hélène Darroze is a stellar exception. Her flagship Michelin-starred St-Germain premises are closed for renovations until 2019, when they will reopen as a new restaurant space.

Fun fact: Darroze was the inspiration for the character Colette in the winsome animated film Ratatouille.
