Kitchen designer and installer CCE has completed a luxury kitchen at the Galvin brothers’ new HOP pub and restaurant in London’s Spitalfields.
Transforming the former Galvin’s Café a Vin into the new Galvin HOP, CCE left the kitchen area semi-open to add a touch of theatre.
The site is the first all day ‘pub-de-luxe’ to be launched by Chris and Jeff Galvin, serving English pub classics as haute cuisine.
The restaurant has a purpose-built hot dog area. This has a black, granite topped work station, an electric countertop Ovention oven, an under counter refrigerator and a mustard pump.
Ray Costelloe, MD of CCE Group, oversaw the refurbishment. He said: “Styles may change but standards don’t, at least not for us and our clients.
“Our clients demanded and got the best from us in everything from virtual reality walk-throughs of the proposed design to the customised fabrication of specialist units in our Essex production facility.
“We very much look forward to rolling out the concept into carefully selected venues going forward with our trade partners.”
The kitchen features state-of-the-art equipment such as a bespoke island cook suite built by CCE with a Synergy Grill.
Valentine supplied a twin basket Evo 2200 fryer, while sister company Cuisinequip provided three twin multi-function counter-top induction hobs.
Steve Elliott, national sales manager for Valentine and Cuisinequip, said: “It was fantastic to be asked to contribute our equipment and expertise to the Galvin brothers’ latest project – I’m sure HOP will prove a big hit in Spitalfields.”
Other equipment includes a wall mounted refrigerated cabinet with LED internal lighting from Iglu; Vitamix Countertop Blender from Jestic and a 28litre countertop water bath from Clifton.
In addition, there’s a six grid Rational oven, a Thernodyne holding unit, Frima electric variocooking centre and Adande ‘Slide In’ varicool refrigerated single drawer with blast chill facility.
