Touching down in Luxembourg just for one night, I organized an after-work drink – that soon became a big night out – with my girlfriends. Fancying something informal but refined and very deluded by the last place of this kind we tried recently, we booked a table at 14 Degrés and more, a new eatery and wine bar that has recently opened in the city centre, just in front of Le Royal Hotel.
The concept of the place is really easy going: they serve a daily menu for lunch, they have Italian products to purchase or you can simply sit down, have a glass of wine and some nibbles.
The place is tiny inside, but well decorated and impressive in the details. The outdoor table are overlooking a busy boulevard Royal, but after a while you really don’t care. The terrace is wide and is perfect if you want just to relax.
We got there around 6 pm and welcome by the owner. Started with a glass of bubbles while waiting for the squad to be completed and went then for a bottle of Fiano followed by a Primitivo one.
We were offered some snacks – vegerables, garlic crème cheese and olives – and we then ordered a mixed platter of charcuterie and cheese. With the red bottle we had as well some more cheese.
Some quick pictures followed by my usual impression.
What I liked about 14 Degrés and more:
- Amazing level of service: even if the place is very informal, the owner was checking on us to see if everything was going fine and was available to suggest us wines and give indications about the food.
- Food and wine are simple but good, wines served at the right temperature and platters prepared with care.
- The location is very relaxing and perfect for end of summer gatherings.
What I liked a bit less about 14 Degrés and more:
- The space inside is not ready for the cold Luxembourg winter and will not yet be able to welcome many people. Anyway we talked with the owner and he confirmed he has already plans for the forthcoming months, including a covered terrace.
In conclusion: 14 Degrés and more offers Italian products for lunch and after-work. For me, it was the perfect place to share a bottle (or more!) of wine with my friends and I really looking forward to come back to try other dishes.
