Galvin Dubai, the highly anticipated offering from the Michelin-starred chef brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin located in the vibrant The Square, City Walk, officially opened its doors on 1st October. The opening of this elegantly social restaurant and lounge represents the completion of the brothers’ first venture outside the UK after the successful opening of Demoiselle by Galvin earlier this year, also at City Walk.
The Dubai concept builds upon the legacy of Galvin Restaurants, a family run collection of French restaurants founded in 2005 by Chris and Jeff. Inspiration is drawn from a commitment to ‘Best of British’, infused with a Mediterranean Basin flair; an evocative array of Italian, Southern French and North African ‘flavours of the sun’. Highlights from the carefully crafted menu include Risotto of Wild Mushrooms, Escabeche of Yellowfin Tuna and Roast Pave of Sea Bass whilst signature cocktails feature Clay Pot Negroni, Vodka and Sake Collins and Down Street Manhattan. Central philosophies of all Galvin venues rely on brotherly bonds and belief in family values, creating a close-knit sense of team, which in Dubai will be overseen by Executive Chef Luigi Vespero, Executive Pastry Chef Ryan Harris and General Manager Eric Handtschowercker.
Located in the UAE’s newest dining destination and buzzing social hot-spot, The Square at City Walk, Galvin Dubai translates the brand’s pedigree for a cosmopolitan audience. The venue fuses a vibrant restaurant and bar area that encapsulates the spirit and elegance of all Galvin Restaurants, creating an elevated dining space and lounge which encourages creativity, conversation and culinary excellence with a captivating laid-back glamour and highly social attitude. The ambition is to create a spirited destination with a striking yet authentic visual language for the international market and offers a strong visual identity.
