Today's Good IdeaWith the family in tow: shopping and eating as in Italy.
“Mamma is the best cook!”, Flavio is sure of that. It is 10:30 in the morning and his mother Angela has just made a tour through her grocery shop where she gathered the ingredients for today’s lunch menu. Soon enough she has created typical Italian pasta dishes such as cannelloni and lasagna in her big open kitchen. The “Atelier del Gusto”, in Luxembourg’s Bonnevoie quarter, not only sells Italian groceries, it is also a restaurant, and it is true to its name. Time for a strong espresso! Bistro chairs, small tables and plastic tablecloths… memories from last year’s holiday in Italy come flooding back – the quality of the food and welcome often far exceeding the decoration! Flavio’s family has been living in Luxembourg for five years far from their origins in Puglia, the heel of the Italian boot. A lot of what you will find in the Atelier del Gusto comes from this region: pasta, jam, biscuits…., and there is also a deli counter. Some highlights that you simply must try: the homemade squid salad as well as the mozzarella and the burrato! “Our mozzarella is delivered to many restaurants and delicatessens in Luxembourg”, Flavio proudly tells us.

Today's Good IdeaArt indulgence for all your senses.
Just imagine, you’re sitting in an art gallery, surrounded by art and savouring a delicious meal. This is not as farfetched as you may think: today we are introducing you to “kjub” – an art gallery-restaurant. The concept introduced by the Luxembourger Jaco Diederich has proved itself over the past couple of years and attracted many fans. Here art is not only reserved for elite “experts” but is accessible to every “kjub” visitor – as they eat so to speak. That cooking and presenting is also an art is proven by the cooking team of “kjub”: fine French bistro-cuisine, freshly prepared and – as a special treat – the top quality (partly Luxembourgish) meat selection. By the way, “kjub” is also renowned for its excellent lobster dishes. How fitting that the current exhibition of space filling artworks from Luxembourgish artist Eric Mangen features an out of dimension lobster on the wall….Once you find yourself satisfied with art and food, you can move to the cozy bar in the room next door, and indulge in a nightcap!Read on >
