Its website and a notice on the door suggest a temporary closure, but Luxembourg’s business registry is clear: La Liberté SA has been bankrupt since 9 October 2023. Located at 1 Place de Paris, the company’s trading name was Le Strogoff.
The Strogoff restaurant with its varied menu (pizzas, meat, fish, snacks) is going out of business, while the Mazelier Group’s other two outlets in Luxembourg, Le Comptoir Bohème and Le Petit Bohème, will continue to operate.
Le Knuedler and La Cloche d’Or to continue
Contacted by Delano’s sister publication Paperjam, Richard Mazelier, the company’s manager, spoke of a succession of pitfalls between the health crisis and the construction for the tram, which have made life difficult for his establishment in the Gare district.
Mazelier had no comment to make about Le Petit Bohème and Le Comptoir Bohème. Le Petit Bohème opened in early 2021 in the Monoprix shop in Knuedler. The second opened the following summer at the Cloche d’Or, where it can accommodate 280 diners.
According to the owners, these two establishments employ around forty people.
