We have found a little corner of North America in the heart of Bonnevoie for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
North Bay has been opened by Babak and Ali Jahangard Patavani, two brothers born in Iran, who fled to Canada more than 25 years ago. They always dreamt of opening a restaurant together, but Babak moved to Luxembourg while Ali stayed working as a cook in Canada.
When they decided that it was the time to write their own story, Ali moved to Luxembourg, In June last year, they found the perfect spot to open their very own Diner.
What is a Diner?
We have all seen Diners in American films and series. A restaurant that is often open 24 hours a day, with neon lights outside, coloured banquettes in fake leather, and coffee pots that are never empty for a free caffeine refill. On the menu, the Diner offers classic and often very affordable dishes. But, above all, the Diner is an anchor point, present in every neighbourhood and which sees a heterogeneous clientele pass by, ranging from workers in a hurry early in the morning, to the elderly for lunch or even hungry students in the middle of the night.
In terms of decoration, you won’t find the classic diner decoration at North Bay. There are no frills here, just a few wooden tables, green walls, and a kitchen open to the room where the cooks are busy.
But don’t worry, if the decoration isn’t what you’d expect from a diner, the food is!
At North Bay, you’re guaranteed to devour pancakes, French toast or eggs and bacon all day long, all homemade by the two brothers. All this with a coffee pot that is always hot, poured at will by the waiter. A perfect start to the day!
Let yourself be tempted by the two typical dishes for a pantagruelian breakfast: the “Megan”, composed of pancakes, sausage or bacon and eggs (scrambled or fried) or the “North Bay” with eggs of your choice, sausage or bacon, the famous Hash Brown (fried potato pancake) and butter and jam toasts.
For sandwich lovers, the BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomato) will delight you, as well as the salmon and herbs cream cheese toast or the comforting “grilled cheese”, two slices of bread with cheddar cheese in the middle, grilled in a pan.
Classics meals to discover
In addition to breakfast, North-Bay offers all the must-try North American dishes for lunch and dinner. Burgers, of course, but also a wide variety of sandwiches with pulled pork, falafel, spicy chicken and also burritos.
Don’t miss the real “Mac and Cheese”, a dish made with pasta and bacon, or the fried chicken (3, 6 or 8 pieces to choose from).
As you can see, North-Bay is the kingdom of “comfort food”, ideal to overcome the winter.
The Bonnevoie habitants already like the comforting vibes of this restaurant. “So far we are overwhelmed with all the positive reactions. Unfortunately in weekends we have to turn customers down due to very limited space. But in the summer we have a terrace to seat more people !” told us the owners.
