La Table du Connétable can be found inside Auberge du Jeu de Paume in the heart of Chantilly. This Michelin-starred restaurant continues the elegance found throughout the hotel, the tables were immaculate and well presented, and the decor had a sophisticated feel.

Inside we found a small army of staff waiting to serve and we were left wanting for nothing. With executive Chef Julien Lucas at the helm of the kitchen, we were confident each and every dish was being masterfully crafted.

Once at our table, we found ourselves in a dining room that aims to impress. There are numerous beautiful pieces of art which are centuries old and hold a wealth of history, some of which capture the first scenes of Dom Pérignon being enjoyed which were most enjoyable.

To begin our evening, we started with an aperitif. My partner indulged in a fine glass of 2007 Louis Roederer Cristal, which can only be described as suitably sophisticated, while I opted for a personal favourite in the form of a glass of Billecart-Salmon, Brut Rosé.

For our starters, I decided on the pan-seared foie gras, which was smoked with juniper and completed with a salt crust baked rhubarb. A gorgeous dish, rich in flavour and matched by the presentation. My partner opted for the simply titled “Tomato” dish, which comprised of five variations of tomato, freshened with marigold and finished with a black olive oil. The dish was beautifully presented, and each variation of tomato was nothing short of a joy to taste.

“It was a pleasure to be on the receiving end of dishes so carefully prepared and presented.”

For our main courses, after much debate, I settled on the Duck Rossini. The duck was tender and perfectly seasoned, and the dish was complete with stuffed tomato with white beans from Soissons, tarragon salad and rocket. A perfect marriage of flavours and a faultless dish. My partner went for the Summer Roe Deer, which was roasted with fir buds, vegetable mayonnaise, and finished with fresh beetroot in a salt crust. It was a joy to experience another dish delivering a superb blend of flavours.

We couldn’t pass on dessert with so many tempting offerings. I opted for the Rhubarb dessert, which is sourced from the Somme Bay near Oise River and delivered a wonderfully fresh and tart flavour. While my partner went for the indulgent and rewarding Grand Cru Chocolate, complete with Endive from Picardy.

We must also mention the cheese trolley which is complete with around 25 different types of cheese. Each cheese has been carefully selected and comes complete with their own fascinating story, a journey we recommend - so do make sure you save room for this.

To accompany our meal, our chosen wine for the evening was a bottle of 2013, Domaine de la Biscarelle, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Anglaises, Rhone, France. A powerful wine with an attractive nose of warm spices, cherries, and red berries.

It was a pleasure to be on the receiving end of dishes so carefully prepared and presented. The service at La Table du Connétable was on point, the period decor and ambience from Auberge du Jeu de Paume added to the overall experience, and we look forward to returning to sample more of their menu in the future.
