Today's Good IdeaArtful dining in Ca(fé)sino
For its 20th birthday, “Casino Luxembourg”, the forum of contemporary art in the center of the city, has given itself a true gem of a present. The restaurant “ca(fé)sino” in the newly restored Salon Saint-Hubert. With this sophisticated new brasserie style restaurant, the more than hundred year-old culinary tradition of Casino Luxembourg has been revived. And you sit right at the center of things… at a long table, surrounded by wooden floors, stucco, modern decor with artistic touches such as the literally illuminating neon-artwork “Zeitgeist - Karl Cobain”. At Johan Herelixka and Laurent Bouchend'homme’s restaurant, you will experience the exclusive French way of life – and far more than one would expect from a museum’s restaurant. On the menu you will find, probably unique in the world, “Bouchée à la Grande-Duchesse“, a spicy steak tartar - served traditionally at the table and various mouthwatering daily suggestions. From 3 pm, Ca(fé)sino offers a smaller but no less creative menu that includes a selection of home-made patisserie. Olden day splendor is back, and the pearl shines bright again… let yourself be enchanted, whether you’re interested in art or not!Read on >
Today's Good IdeaArtistic glass is fantastic!
Upon our first encounter, Luxembourger Millie Mack sat under the shade of pink blossoming tree in front of her atelier working on her next piece of art. The surrounding is purely idyllic in front of the entrance to the Mondorf-les-Bains spa. A treasure trove of native (glass) craftsmanship is hosted in this pretty spa town just southeast of Luxembourg where opening hours are by appointment. Millie Mack brings artistic meaning to glass in the truest sense of the word; fantastic shapes like figures and face as well as abstract decorative items. The glass bowls are playful in form and color, yet subtle enough to add a touch a décor to any table or dresser. The delicate glass beads for instance are absolutely distinguished and are purchasable as elegant necklaces. However, not everything is made of glass at Millie Mack’s … discover many exceptional decorative items, jewelry, scarves and bags that harmonize the assorted range.Read on >
Today's Good IdeaExperience the “Royal life”
Discover Luxembourgs "Fournisseurs de la Cour" and experience the “Royal life” not only with visits to the Grand Ducal Palace, strolls through the city’s capital, or excursions to countryside castles, but also by shopping! Currently, there are approx. 40 so-called "Fournisseur de la Cour" establishments, local producers and suppliers honored with this praiseworthy title and plaque with an inscription of the Royal Coat of Arms. The history of this laudable designation dates back to the mid-19th Century, during the reign of Guillaume III, King of the Netherlands and Grand Duke of Luxembourg. Establishments supplying to the royal court regularly for a period of at least 5 years are eligible to apply for this title. The highest quality goes without saying, as these specialized shops and establishments are distinguishable with a royal crest inscribed sign proudly displayed for all to admire. From jewelry shops, to breweries, wineries, and butcher shops, to telecommunications companies, beauty salons, hair dressers, leather goods specialists, fine china, and pastry shops; several businesses based in Luxembourg City and across the country, proudly crown themselves as "Fournisseurs de la Cour". Take pleasure in Luxembourg’s corporate and retail landscape and discover their glowing "royal" touch. Have a look at our special category here.Read on >
Groceries / Delicatessen
Culinary treasures from Greece.
Whitewashed houses with domed blue roofs on small islands, surrounded by azure water….Greece as you remember it from your holidays – and how Christos loves it! This young Greek recently opened his shop “Pandemos Agora“ in Luxembourg-city. The unusual shop design will remind you instantly of your holidays. Quality products, predominantly Greek, are displayed on the curved shelves. Christos showed us a few highlights, including olive oil from “The Governor“. Produced from the olives of Corfu, it is one of the healthiest olive oils in the world. Another olive oil is sold in clay vases, modeled on those used by Olympic athletes to transport oil thousands of years ago. And of course there’s Greek wine. Christos offers wines made from very old grapes, currently enjoying a strong revival in Greece. These include Assyrtiko (white wine from Santorini) and Agiorgitiko (red wine from the Peloponnese). Then there is the old traditional spoon jam, a jam with large fruit pieces; Pandeomos Agora sells the “Spoon Sweet“ brand. This jam is served to guests as a sweet to be eaten with spoons, but it is also delicious on its own, or with natural yoghurt – a dream! You should also try the products from the fresh foods counter. Without a doubt the most noteworthy is the moussaka. Not edible, but just as remarkable, are the toiletries from the greek brand “philab“. Or even more exclusive, there is the German brand “Julisis“. These high end products use precious metals such as gold and silver in the production process.
