“The French art of dining and the European art of living”
Maître de Maison
- Theresa Henkelmann
Thomas Henkelmann is the most French of German Chefs. Born in the Black Forest, this devotee of French gastronomy learned his trade in Alsace before moving his pots and pans to this beautiful 18th century Italianate manor house near the Connecticut coast. Inspired by his travels, Chef Henkelmann likes to break down boundaries and create surprising combinations, like his champagne sauerkraut accompanied by a seafood mousseline. Each of his recipes makes a subtle reference to his origins. Thomas’s partner Theresa, an interior designer, has created a décor worthy of his cooking, ensuring the hotel’s recognition as one of Greenwich’s most tasteful addresses.
