Following an extensive renovation, Céleste at The Lanesborough has been awarded its first ever Michelin star.

Led by Chef Patron Eric Frechon, Céleste is becoming one of London’s most celebrated addresses, offering a selection of creative and imaginative French-inspired cuisine while using only the best of British ingredients.

Boasting a modern European dining concept that draws on French savoir faire whilst championing British gastronomic traditions and produce, the restaurant presents an exciting new culinary era for the prestigious hotel.

Frechon is one of Paris’ most esteemed Michelin-starred chefs and a leading figure at Oetker Collection’s Le Bristol since 1999. On the food, he commented: “The menu takes inspiration from London as a global capital for cuisine. We work closely with local suppliers to use the best ingredients the country has to offer, prepared using classic French techniques.”

On his fifth Michelin star, he added: “It is a real honour to be awarded a fifth Michelin star in my career, and at our new restaurant in London that only launched one year ago. Experiencing outstanding food is an important part of a visit to The Lanesborough, and we aim to deliver the finest quality and an exceptional dining experience for our guests.”

Deriving from the late 19th century, the name “Céleste” translates from French into “heavenly” and is aptly reflected throughout the restaurant, from the English crystal chandeliers that illuminate the restaurant’s delicate detailing, to the English and French-inspired cuisine.

The restaurant is overseen by The Lanesborough’s Executive Chef Florian Favario who brings a wealth of experience and creativity inspired by his travels.
