Three Luxembourg restaurants in Europe Michelin guide

Three restaurants in Luxembourg have been selected in this year’s Michelin guide.

Michelin guide Main Cities of Europe covers 44 cities in 20 countries and a total of 2,332 restaurants have made it into this year’s edition.

Italian restaurant Mosconi, in Luxembourg Grund, was awarded two stars.

And two restaurants – Clairefontaine and La Cristallerie – are among 386 eateries across Europe to have been given one Michelin star.

Michael Ellis, International Director in charge of the Michelin guides, said: “The Michelin guide Main Cities of Europe 2017 reflects the vibrancy and diversity of the culinary scene in Europe’s major cities.

“A crossroad of cultural and economic exchanges”

“Europe is a veritable crossroad of cultural and economic exchanges and has seen a huge development in its gastronomic scene and in its culinary offering in recent years.”

This year 51 additional restaurants have been awarded one star and a total of 20 restaurants have been awarded three stars.

“Thanks to a new generation of young chefs who show their ability to cook at a high level, there has never been a broader choice of great places to dine, often in a casual, relaxed atmosphere,” he added.

Mosconi’s journey started in 1986 when Illario and Simonetta Mosconi opened their first restaurant, le Domus, in Esch-sur Alzette. The restaurant moved to the Grund in 2000 and its reputation is based on its authentic Italian cuisine.

La Cristallerie is located on the first floor of the Place d’Armes Hotel and Clairefontaine is a stone’s throw away from Place Guillaume.

A total of 50 additional restaurants have been awarded a Bib Gourmand this year – an award which recognises good quality and good value cuisine.

The Michelin guide Main Cities of Europe will be available on Thursday and it is also available as an app.
