Thoroughly enjoyed a lunch (Menu du Jour) here just before New Year's. Smoked mussel velouté was so deep, complex and luxurious I wanted to swim in it, and the little cubes of chicken thigh were somehow not overpowered by the sea flavours and complemented the dish perfectly.
My main of slow-cooked feather blade of beef was intensely flavoured, rich and dark as chocolate, and a great example of how good this under-used cut can be. In fact, I enjoyed it far more than I have many a rare-grilled steak.
Chocolate fondant was, for me, the weakest dish of the meal but I'm being picky here, and it was nevertheless very tasty. I just would have expected a bit more of an oozing centre perhaps. The accompanying yoghurt and dill sorbet (ice cream?) was different and interesting but I'm not sure it is something I could get too excited about.
Overall, it was a delicious meal and the service was impeccable. The views across London only add to the occasion and provide an extra wow factor. I can't recommend Galvin at Windows highly enough for a special occasion.
