A dazzlingly stylish venue, Charlotte opened at the end of 2017 in the former White House premises.
Tanja de Jager’s latest nightlife venture sees her teaming up with Patrick Giry to create a stylish bar and eatery in the heart of the city.
De Jager, a former RTL journalist, opened Dipso (The Wine Republic) in the old town a couple of years ago and has enjoyed great success with the wine bar.
Charlotte seems to follow a similar principle to Dipso, as a gastro-bar where guests can enjoy a drink with friends in the evening, and also grab a bite to eat without having to move location to find a restaurant.
Naturally, the drinks menu features a selection of fine wines under the stewardship of Edouard Rousseau (winner of the Best Sommelier in Luxembourg in 2015). But Charlotte also prides itself on making and creating sumptuous cocktails.
Having already worked with Jan Schneidewind for some of Dipso’s monthly “Cuisine des amis” evenings, the renowned chef was invited to create a special menu for Charlotte.
This includes a range of starter plates like a Thai beef salad or a home-made savoury macaroons and soups such as a topinambour cappuccino with a smoked bacon crumble.
For more hungry guests, Schneidewind has created a crispy warm goat’s cheese quiche with melon and tuna salad or a Limousin beef tartare.
And there are bigger dishes of soup to share which can be topped with supplements chosen from beef, chicken, Black Tiger prawns or scallops.
Desserts include a macha tea cake with lychees and an exotic fruit ratatouille with a kiwi coulis and fromage blanc sorbet. Upstairs at Charlotte can also be hired to host private events for up to 100 people.
