It's hard to believe that the Galvin brothers opened their first restaurant, Bistrot de Luxe, in 2005 – partly because it's been so long, but partly because the restaurant feels like it's been there forever. Loved by locals, regulars and foodie tourists alike, Bistrot de Luxe is well known for offering Michelin-quality food in a relaxed bistro style. Menus are equal parts rustic and refined; quality ingredients are transformed into elegant takes on traditional hearty French dishes such as tarte Tatin, fish soup and cassoulet.
The brothers behind the restaurants, Chris and Jeff Galvin, now have a host of other Michelin-starred restaurant to their name, but Bistrot de Luxe will always be unique in that it was the first restaurant they planned, opened and owned themselves. To honour a decade of the restaurant's success the brothers have developed a special menu commemorating their favourite dishes from the last ten years. Read on to discover more about these Dishes of the Decade, and follow our recipes to recreate them yourself.
