How 2 – Visit the neighbour La Distillerie – Chateau Bourglinster

This time at @ the Michelin starred “La Distillerie” – What a meal.

Not long.. or according to Foursquare.. 2 months since last visit at Chateau Bourglinster and on this  Surprise Sunny Saturday – We are back.
I have the idea that René Mathieu is running one of the absolute strongest kitchens in Luxembourg, so it is with high expectations and excitement We arrive.

No Cheese for us – The neighbors roll out the cart and it looks GOOD


Nips for coffee, memories of a place in Bordeaux

What 2 improve (In my humble opinion)
  • Turbot was slightly well done
  • Room is a little cold – you feel a little exposed… whispering
  • Kitchen is Not local / molecular / vegetarian…. what is it?.. do We want a distinct? or is it simply not like the others 🙂
Lessons learned
  • La Distillerie is going strong.. maybe best kitchen in Luxembourg
  • Liked the blacked out glass and drinking guess game
  • Twice the price of an “average” Luxembourg meal this is good value!
  • With some work I think We have Michelin 2 star quality
  • It’s cool to eat well – Quote “Princess A”
  • Life is good
