The Backyard that was opened this summer by Manu Da Costa, manager of the famous KYOSK in Kirchberg, is now dressed in winter clothes and has become “Le Tunnel”, open during the week for lunch and also for private parties.
It is in the midst of the road to Esch, in Hollerich, that their mascot, the snail has accompanied you all summer surrounded by greenery arranged in a “guinguette” style, to spend a moment with friends or family, between barbecues, music and craft beers.
For the winter season, Manu Da Costa and his team have fitted out the corridor that leads from the entrance on the route d’Esch to the garden at the back. And let’s just say that the main ambition of this place is to bring you back to your memories, those that make your heart feel a little bit nostalgic but that are so good for the spirit!
Once in the Tunnel, you will be entertained by music from the 60’s, 70’s or 80’s, but also by old cinema classics (De Funès in particular, much loved by Manu) projected on a wall. For lunch, formica tables welcome you with beautiful vintage tableware and red and white checkered napkins. The burgundy chesterfields have also been brought in from the garden and form a cosy corner, ideal to sip a drink. The place is welcoming, without frills, to spend a nice moment in a family atmosphere.
Open from Monday to Friday for lunch, you will find on the menu regressive dishes just like those prepared by your parents or grandparents for Sunday lunch: pot-au-feu, pork roast, vegetable stew, gratins and for dessert chocolate or orange cakes. And from February, fondue will also be on the menu! The very definition of “comfort food” that we love to spend the winter with!
And for those who like to eat well whilst having one or more drinks with friends, one rushes there on Thursday evenings for an “Aperitivo” between 5 and 10 pm. On the menu, a buffet of antipasti to be enjoyed with your drink. Exceptionally on these evenings, the kitchen also stays open until 9pm. Festive atmosphere guaranteed!
On weekends or evenings, the Tunnel can be booked for corporate events or birthday parties! Contact them for more information.
The Backyard, both in summer and winter is a real must!
