March 2012 will see the opening of the Galvin Demoiselle restaurant in Harrods, bringing high quality French cuisine, family hospitality and exceptional service to a unique location above the Food Halls.
Galvin Demoiselle will be the fifth London addition to the restaurant portfolio of Michelin-starred brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin. The menu will focus on seasonal ingredients of the highest quality, combining the chefs' signature dishes such as confit pork cheeks and tarte tatin with exclusive creations for Galvin Demoiselle.
Sara Galvin, patron of Galvin Demoiselle and wife of Chris, says: "We are thrilled to be opening a restaurant in such an iconic London landmark and within one of the world's most renowned Food Halls."
The restaurant will be where Café Espresso used to be in the food hall. Located in the fruit ‘n’ veg and pantry hall on a mezzanine level, the restaurant will be accessed via some marble steps. It is table service and self-contained but offers diners the chance to view proceedings over the food hall as they eat.
The food will be the kind that you want to eat while you’re shopping in Harrods so think daily soup specials, omelettes, salads and charcuteries as well as a few meat and poultry cocottes - a lovely confit of pork cheeks with pommes mousseline or a slow cooked Cornish lamb with apricots, almonds and couscous. Their signature dish will be a warm lobster fishcake with lime vinaigrette and a hint of ginger.
All menu options can of course be served with a glass of wine or champagne to refresh aching feet before more shopping!
