Mayfair Patisserie Hounds Can Now Sniff Out a £14 Chocolate Dog

The Connaught’s new patisserie has two headline acts: chocolate dogs and a dessert from the River Cafe

A new patisserie opening from a luxury hotel? Woof

Historic luxury Mayfair hotel The Connaught’s new patisserie shop offers pastry hounds the chance to eat a chocolate dog for £14; or £11, if it gets taken on a walk. Part of the hotel’s logo, the “Connaughty Hound” is the key draw at the new patisserie counter, alongside, perhaps puzzlingly, a dessert that the hotel didn’t make at all: the River Cafe chocolate nemesis cake, which is “hand-delivered” to the new opening daily.

Patisserie made by executive pastry chef Nicolas Rouzaud, formerly of fellow London pile The Lanesborough, includes a yuzu and honeycomb éclair; London’s favourite recent patisserie adoption, the Paris-Brest; and a fig and walnut mousse. It will also offer scones with clotted cream and jam, as a votive concession to being in Britain.
