Galvin Restaurants will open Demoiselle by Galvin on Dubai’s City Walk in March, marking the group’s first international venture.
The Demoiselle brand was launched at Harrods in London in 2012, with the Dubai venture the 11th project from Michelin-starred chef brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin.
Galvin Restaurants co-founder, Jeff Galvin, commented: “We are tremendously excited for the launch of Demoiselle by Galvin in Dubai — our very first venture outside the UK. We have been exploring our expansion to the UAE for more than seven years and all of the elements are in place – location, team, partner, menu, and interiors – to create a timeless experience in a very modern city.”
Chris Galvin, who founded Galvin Restaurants with his younger brother in 2005, added: “With a love of shopping and celebrating over good food with family and friends, Dubai is the ideal market for Demoiselle by Galvin, and our first international opportunity to share our passion for classic cuisine, service, and customer focus.”
Demoiselle by Galvin’s menu has been personally designed by the Galvin brothers and led by their protégé, executive chef Luigi Vespero.
Working under the wing of Chris and Jeff Galvin for three years in London, chef Vespero played an integral role in the Galvin restaurants’ culinary team, opening Galvin la Chapelle and contributing significantly to the success of Galvin Bistrot de Luxe.
The 210-seat continental style all-day café will offer artisanal options for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.
Breakfast will be enhanced with artisanal bread and a selection of viennoiserie.
The 6,039ft2 restaurant features warm, airy interiors and has two floors with more than half of the restaurant set in a terrace overlooking City Walk.
Upstairs there is a salon de thé, a luxurious yet relaxed parlor where afternoon tea is served.
Each Galvin destination is unique but they share a common theme: a family-centric approach that delivers high quality cuisine, served in luxurious surroundings by warm, hospitable and professional front of house.
