Galvin La Chapelle
35 Spital Square, London, E1 6DY
Why: It’s not very often that you can wine and dine inside an old converted church. Michelin star-awarded Galvin La Chapelle is quite possibly one of the city’s most unique and breath-taking dining rooms. You can practically hear the angels sing as you enjoy signature dishes like the heavenly Dorset crab lasagne and chateaubriand.
What to order: This holy grail of restaurants offers a seasonally changing repertoire from chef patron, Jeff Galvin. The menu spans from elegant prix fixe choices, to gourmet Sunday roasts. Exquisite Galvin signature dishes include pavé of sea trout with squid ink linguine, or Landes foie gras with Lyonnaise onions, while desserts, complete with sommelier recommendations, include coffee parfait with berry compote and chocolate crumble.
Look out for: There are medieval-style chandeliers and statuesque pillars, but don’t forget to look up, way up, to the 100-ft high vaulted ceilings. Michelin star-awarded Galvin La Chapelle is quite possibly one of the city’s most unique and breathtaking dining rooms.
