Luxembourg Bistro

It’s amazing what a sneaky trip to France can do. Fleeting around the modish bistros of Paris inspired admired restaurateur Andrew McConnell (who you know from Cumulus Inc, Cutler & Co, Supernormal) and chef Chris Watson (ex Cutler & Co) to transform the former Golden Fields site into a classic European/French bistro.

Voila, “Luxembourg” with its cool European glamour, featuring a rockin’ marble bar, dark timbers and classic Euro furnishings. The guys even handpicked the antique nickel cabinets and one mother of all antler heads grandly set on the wall.

Watson’s menu exudes exciting flair: think offal with the likes of grilled beef heart and tripe & cuttlefish braise and a smart selection of house-made charcuterie. Our pick is the rich Boudin Noir with shredded apple and pickled onion.

The sashimi starter impresses: fleshy chunks of sea bream are made creamy with buttermilk and dressed with punchy horseradish and fresh dill. It’s fantastic.

As is the tender 350g dry aged porterhouse, garnished with Watson’s own ‘Café de Paris’ butter. Just be prepared to part with $44 for it.

Wine trends towards low intervention and organic drops; so from Burgenland to Beechworth you’ll drink well.

What makes us happiest is the ‘Le Cinq à Sept’ (5-7pm) happy hour. Here oysters can be slurped for half price and Aperol Spritzes can be sipped for $8 . So pop by for post- work happiness, linger on for a bite and channel your inner Euro.
