Spitalfields Restaurants - Summer at Galvin HOP
Galvin HOP Posted: 27/07/2016

Spitalfields Restaurants - Summer at Galvin HOP In the last few weeks it’s finally felt as if summer is actually a season at Galvin HOP, rather than just a grey and windy buffer between a grey and windy spring and uncertain autumn. London has stood glittering in the sunshine, fierce heat reflecting from every polished surface and the terraces of restaurants in Spitalfields have been full of hot and thirsty people in equal parts soaking up and hiding from the sun. It’s been the same across the rest of London and it’s felt at times like every spare scrap of pavement and rooftop has been dragooned into service to provide space to by turns revel in and complain about the heat. We are in the...

The Perfect Wine on Tap
Galvin HOP Posted: 10/03/2016

There are many ways of transporting and serving wine, the most common being wine in bottles. They have the advantage of portability, ease of opening and of course familiarity – all of which are fantastic when you intend to open a bottle and serve it within a short amount of time. Once you start to think about serving by the glass then parameters change and keeping fine wine in the best condition is difficult with bottles. At Galvin HOP we wanted to serve a perfect glass of wine every time so Andrea Briccarello, head wine buyer for the Galvin Group, decided on an innovative high-tech keg system. With this system the wine is transported in ...

How to create the perfect Galvin Dog Deluxe?
Galvin HOP Posted: 09/03/2016

When the Galvin team set out to create the perfect hotdog there were a lot of things to consider and it took four months of work to create a sausage, bun and choucroute which reached their standards. When it came to which mustard to use, they sought out the same sort of rigour and experience and found it at Maille. In this film Maille's Mustard Sommelier Harry Lalousis talks a little about what makes mustard such an essential part of the Galvin Dog de Luxe:

Our Beer Master knows his Perfect Pours
Galvin HOP Posted: 24/02/2016

Galvin HOP serves a great selection of craft beers but the one we chose to have on draft is fresh unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell, delivered weekly and stored in spectacular tanks above the bar. This means it is the closest to drinking the beer straight from the brewery as possible but it doesn't end there - the heritage of Pilsner Urquell means that over the years they have developed different ways of pouring the beer to emphasise different characteristics and in this video their Beer Master Robert Lobovsky talks about that history and the three special pours.

Beaujolais Breakfast
Galvin HOP Posted: 12/10/2015

Beaujolais Breakfast With just weeks between harvest and bottling, Beaujolais Nouveau Day is more than a tradition, it’s a celebration of the intersection of art and craft wrapped in the perfect excuse for a touch of indulgence. France lights up on 19 November with parties, fireworks, music and festivals but if you can’t make it to Les Sarmentelles this year then let us provide something tantalising a little closer to home with our first ever Beaujolais Nouveau Breakfast at Café à Vin. Our chefs have created a paired menu to bring the best out of this youngest and most vivacious of wines which we will be serving 9-10.30am on Thursday ...

Great British Beer Festival
Galvin HOP Posted: 24/07/2015

Great British Beer Festival During this year’s Great British Beer Festival at Galvin Café à Vin, our affections will be turning from the noble grape to the grain (and the all-important hop!). Each day there will be a special on the menu paired with a fantastic beer from the Gipsy Hill brewery in South London, handpicked by head chef Jack Boast and head sommelier Andrea Briccarello. As an extra special treat for the Friday dinner (August 14th) there will be four food stations serving a different dish each matched with a Gipsy Hill brew. And exclusively for us, you will have the chance to be the first to taste Gipsy Hill’s new brew, that will match perfectly ...
