Galvins Café à Vin

35 Spital Square, Spitalfields, London, London, E1 6DY
Part of the Galvin brothers excellent little 'chain' of top-class eateries - this one acts as the junior partner to the next door Galvin La Chapelle, but although offering less ambitious dishes, it is still top-class in its own right.

A top-class bistro/brasserie-style menu seem to be the aim, while starters such as 'Escargots à la Bourguignonne'; 'Charcuterie maison with Celeriac Rémoulade & Cornichons'; 'Steak Tartare with Toasted Sourdough' and 'Partridge & Foie Gras Terrine, Pickled Quince & Toast' set the style.

Perhaps to be followed by 'Daube of Beef with Creamed Potatoes, Baby Onions & Lardons'; 'Stone Bass en Papillote with Ceps, Thyme, Spinach & Noilly Prat'; 'Char-Grilled Leg of Lamb with Swiss Chard, Tarbais Beans & Anchovy Dressing' and 'Bramata Polenta with Mixed Wild Mushrooms, Mascarpone & Parsley' amonst the mains.

There are also a selection of items, including Pissaladière, from their wood-fired oven.

Finish with Tart Tatin, Crème Brulée, Treacle Tart with Crème Fraiche & the like.
