With tables now covered in paper and cloth, a curtain at the door and bistro chairs, taxidermy and antique cabinets giving the once-stark room a little welcome clutter, Andrew McConnell's pan-Asian Golden Fields has morphed into a modern European bistro. And it's not just the décor and branding that have negotiated the change successfully. Co-owner/chef Chris Watson's instantly appealing menu embraces both bistro staples (such as great steak, oysters and fish à la meunière) and less traditional plates (sea bream sashimi dressed with buttermilk and dill oil, or grilled squid and cos hearts with a squid-ink vinaigrette) with equal success. Other touches, such as house-made butter and charcuterie (the pan-fried mortadella with green tomato ketchup is a cracker), sharp service and a drinks menu chock-full of natural wine and original cocktails emphasise just how clever, confident and enjoyable Luxembourg is.
