As part of the Luxembourg blog award 2017 we were invited to a partner event at the hotel Le Place d’Armes. Last week, the hotel reopened its restaurant Pless and we had the pleasure to be among the first guests.
The Pless is located at Place d’Armes in Luxembourg-City. You can’t find a better location, it is truly in the heart of the city.
Prior to the tasting event, we got a little sneak peak into some of the guest rooms and suites, the gourmet restaurant, La Cristallerie, meeting rooms and the Fitness. The hotel is unique in the sense that there are no two rooms with the same decoration, ancient tiled floors have been kept in place and in some parts you can see exposed stone walls.
That being said, back to the purpose of our visit which was to discover what the new Pless Rôtisserie has to offer. The restaurant has been completely redesigned by the french interior architect Tristan Auer whom we had the pleasure to meet that evening. The surprise finding in Paris of paintings of Pierre-Joseph Redouté and his niece Clémence, who were regular visitors of the Place d’Armes in the 19th century were his inspiration for the redesign. The decoration of the restaurant is a subtle mix of bright yellow-gold colors and deep green on a grey, white background.
In the kitchen you’ll find the same chefs as previously, Fabrice Salvador and his sous chef Mathieu Morvan. New at Pless is the kitchen which now opens up into the dining room. Among the chef specialities, you’ll find the spit-roasted chicken, Babi Guling, glazed Australian Wagyu beef brisket and last but not least his latest creation, the Georgian bread as a starter.
We tried a selection of dishes from the menu and each was nicely prepared. The ingredients were fresh, perfectly seasoned and cooked, some with an asian twist. Every sample came with its matching wine, carefully chosen by chef sommelier Olivier Schanne. Passionate and enthusiastic, it was a pleasure to listen to his descriptions of the wines.
Together with our fellow luxembourgish bloggers participating in the blog award we had a lovely evening at the Pless. Next time you’re in the city, check it out! They also have an attractive menu at lunchtime.
