Presentation, Presentation, Presentation is the word that comes to mind when I think of Galvez Restaurant similar to how real estate agents think of Location, Location, Location. However, the location is what might cause people to miss this gem of fine dining. Galvez Restaurant is located next to Dutch Alley near the French Market in a secluded corridor that isn’t easy to spot, but those who do will be in for a treat!
History and Food
Galvez Restaurant gets its namesake from Bernardo De Galvez who became the first Spanish Governor of Louisiana in 1777. In 2009, Laura Cedillo took over the restaurant as both the owner and head chef bringing a culinary experience of Old World Spanish cooking and experience as a New York restaurateur. Although there are some French influences, the menu is primarily Spanish with an extensive selection of Tapas and an assortment of Paellas and Sopas. On the second floor of the restaurant, you’ll be treated to a gorgeous view of the Mississippi River while enjoying the equally exquisite meal. Dining at Galvez is typically more than $20 per plate so expect to pay a premium for your Spanish cravings however attention to detail and presentation is what fine dining is all about and Galvez Restaurant is definitely in the right spot.
