If you would like to enjoy cross-border delights in the truest sense of the word, Nittel is the ideal place to start familiarizing yourself with the various specialities of the wider region:
A short hike to the Saturday farmers' market with its regional products in nearby Mannebach combines exercise with pleasure.
Gourmets who literally want to reach for the «stars» will find themselves in a region whose star density (Michelin Guide) is unique in Europe: from the restaurant of the famous Luxembourgian chef Lea Linster in Frisange (*star; now run by son Louis) to the ***-star restaurant «Victor's Fine Dining» run by Christian Bau in Nennig, 15 km from Nittel.
It goes without saying that a wine from the southern wine Moselle, the Luxembourg Moselle or also the French Moselle should be an integral part of the meal, as well as a regional beer from Mannebach as an accompaniment to somewhat heartier dishes.
We wish you: guten Appetit – gudden Appetit – bon appétit!
P.s.: Our tip when dining at restaurants in Luxembourg or France: Ask first for the low-cost dish of the day «plat du jour»), which is often served at lunchtime. In Michelin star restaurants, a less expensive small menu is also usually offered at mid-day.
