LONDON -  Galvin at Windows, the iconic restaurant on the 28th floor of London Hilton on Park Lane, has been awarded its first Michelin star in the Michelin Restaurant Guide for Great Britain and Ireland 2010.

Opened in May 2006, the restaurant instantly gained praise for both the quality of the cooking and the unrivalled views over the whole of London, previously being named a rising star by Michelin.

Together with head chef Andre Garrett, chef patron Chris Galvin has successfully created seasonally inspired menus based around modern French haute cuisine. Signature dishes include seared Scottish scallops with pumpkin purée, wild chicory, smoked bacon and maple & pomegranate vinaigrette; loin of Balmoral venison with creamed Savoy cabbage, crosnes, sauce Grand Veneur & hachis Parmentier; and South Coast John Dory with orange braised endive, cauliflower purée, and curry oil with golden raisins.

"It is a great achievement to receive recognition from Michelin for everyone's hard work and commitment to excellence," said Chris Galvin, chef patron. "As many of our regular customers will know, I have a first class team at Galvin at Windows and I'm especially proud of Andre Garrett who is one of the bright stars of the future."

Galvin at Windows joins an elite group among Hilton Worldwide hotels in Europe, with La Pergola at the Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria Collection and Gordon Ramsay au Trianon at the Trianon Palace Waldorf Astoria collection also enjoying Michelin star status.

"London has earned a reputation for being one of the world's great gastronomic centres and Galvin at Windows is proud to be recognised as being among the city's finest, with standards of excellence that are matched only by the wonder of the views," said Michael Shepherd, General Manager - London Hilton on Park Lane.

Galvin at Windows is open seven days a week for lunch Sunday to Friday and dinner Monday to Saturday. The restaurant serves a Menu Prestige, offering 3-courses for £58, alongside a Menu Dégustation, 8-courses for £75 (£110 with wine or £130 including Champagne), showcasing signature dishes. A set lunch is also available offering 3-courses for £25.

Previous awards include Restaurant Team of the Year at the 2008 Hotel Catey awards and the Readers' Choice award in the 50 Best Restaurants of 2008.
