In a tribute to one of Luxembourg’s most iconic songs, the restaurant of the same name specialises in grilled meats and prides itself on using regional and seasonal products, demonstrating the best that Luxembourgish cuisine has to offer.
When the restaurant at the Sofitel Luxembourg Europe reopened its doors last Wednesday, it immediately struck that more than just its name had change. In stark contrast to its previous design, which was strongly reminiscent of a traditional alpine restaurant, the restaurant is now characterised by its warm and elegant interior, blending richly painted wood with exuberant colours and soft velvet dotted with gold.
As for the kitchen, the team led by Chef Yann Castano offer a showcase of the best of Luxembourgish gastronomy. With an emphasis to highlight local and regional produce, the basis for a regularly changing menu is composed of fresh and traditional specialities that have been revisited on the grill. To ensure regional and excellent quality of their produce, De Feierwon works in close collaboration with local farmers and producers, such Les paniers de Sandrine and the butchers Guy Kirsch and Maison Steffen.
In order to accentuate the pure flavour of each carefully selected ingredient, the restaurant has opted for a new oven preparation technique using high temperatures of around 800°C. The extreme temperature caramelises the surface of the carefully sourced meat, seafood, and vegetables to create a crispy crust, bringing out a pure and riche flavour. Selected wines and bubbles by Bernard-Massard accompany this local tasting experience.
