2015 marks ten years since Jeff and Chris Galvin opened Bistrot de Luxe, their much loved Baker Street eatery and the first restaurant in their ever expanding empire. Due to the significance of this achievement the Galvin brothers thought hard about a suitable way of celebrating: ‘after five years, we made a plate and gave it to all our favourite customers, but the day comes and goes, so we had the idea of celebrating for a whole year.’
To pay homage to the past, present and future of Bistrot de Luxe the chefs have created a special ‘Dishes of the Decade’ menu, comprising both seasonal favourites and perennial signatures from across the past ten years. The Galvin brothers are known for their contemporary take on classic French cuisine, with Bistrot de Luxe’s menus in particular a careful balance of the rustic and the refined.
So far we have shared their winter menu, featuring Lasagne of Dorset crab, Apple tarte Tatin and Caramelised veal brains with beurre noisette. Spring’s menu showcased some exquisite seafood dishes - Fillet of John Dory with orange glazed endive and a rich Soupe de poisson - and the season culminated in May’s stunning Tagine of lamb with preserved lemon.
