The Galvin brothers, Jeff and Chris, are veterans of Gallic haute cuisine with six well-regarded restaurants and bistros in the city and a desire to make children feel welcome in them all. Celestial dining (you’re on the 28th floor of the Park Lane Hilton) is the score at Galvin at Windows and the 1930s-style interior oozes glamour.
What to eat? Prices are pretty celestial too, if you indulge in the decadent Prestige or Degustation menus, but the set lunch menu is a steal: for just over £30 you get to choose from beetroot-cured salmon with horseradish cream, orange and kohlrabi, perhaps, with beef bourguignon and pomme puree to follow.
Pipsqueak tip Front-of-house are eager to put young diners at ease, and children can opt for the set menu or a Kids’ Menu of two courses for £10, including a drink, such as pasta with butter or tomato, chicken nuggets (not the frozen convenience type, we can assure you) or fish sticks with seasonal vegetables and mashed potato.
