Today's Good IdeaLimitless ice cream pleasure at “Eiscafé Veneziano”
Honey and orange with dates, macadamia-caramel, white chocolate with cranberries and nuts from Piemont… just three out of roughly 120 flavours that Michael Frank has developed with his team in the ice laboratory of “Eiscafé Veneziano”. This lets you choose from more than 50 daily flavours available at the ice cream counter on the Place d’Armes in Luxembourg-city. While we try out the latest “Summer Ice Specials“ (absolutely delicious!!), Michael tells us of his love for ice cream and his goal of always offering his customers new varieties. Besides the classic choices, Eiscafé Veneziano is, not surprisingly, renowned for its innovative and totally extravagant ice creams. Everything is developed in the see-through glass ice cream laboratory, where you can watch Michael and his team going about their work. During winter, this is where they produce their varied ice parfaits, ice cookies (semi freddo), Tartufo and much, much more. We also recommend their products “Fruit Yoghurt kisses”; yoghurts made from homemade fruit purees. And we must also mention that at Eiscafé Veneziano, customers like to meet up for small snacks such as panini sandwiches or crepes.Read on >
Where culinary delights and partying meet
There’s a new venue to eat and party in Limpertsberg. Since March the owner of the restaurant-bar “Fabrik“ in Mersch has opened this restaurant in Luxembourg-city with an original concept. “Hitch” exudes loft-like flair, with no separation between bar and restaurant. And you can also sit on the spacious terrace. The kitchen opens at 11:00 and the cooks take care of you from then until late at night. On offer are tasty and trendy dishes including some local Luxembourgish specialities. The menu ranges from light salads, via “Bouchée à la Reine“ to juicy burgers and crusty pizzas. We tried the burger … absolutely delicious! Also vegans and those with food allergies don’t need to compromise: there are for example gluten-free pasta dishes on the menu. In the “Food Corner“ you can choose throughout the day from a range of small snacks: a late breakfast, something healthy from the salad bar or a fresh sandwich. In the evening Hitch reveals its true party qualities…. Transforming from a trendy -restaurant-bar into a nightclub where up to 300 people can dance the night away. Hitch truly is a good idea to escape the pressures of everyday life!
