Galvin La Chapelle received the sought-after accolade last night of being named Restaurant of the Year London at the AA Hospitality Awards 2010, hosted by Penny Smith at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
Chris, Jeff and Sara Galvin, Chefs and Patrons of Galvin La Chapelle, who received the award in front of an audience of over 700 members of the hospitality industry, commented, “It is always an honour to win any award and gain recognition for the hard work and immense effort that the team has put into making La Chapelle (and Café Avin) such a success, but this one – awarded by the AA – is incredibly special to us.
La Chapelle is a grand restaurant situated in the stunning 19th century grade II listed St. Botolph’s Hall. Jeff Galvin continues to offer the finest classic French bistro cuisine, with menu’s that boast dishes such as; Lasagne of Dorset Crab with chantrelles and chervil and Veal Cheek with zingara garnish & pommes puree. The style of the restaurant is both refined and elegant combining craftsmen-built dark wood furniture and imposing architecture. Galvin La Chapelle, is a destination restaurant which truly delivers a wow factor.
