Art as recipe
The Mudam Café, arranged by the French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, is the restaurant of the Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean by famous architect Ieoh Ming Pei. The space and the menu were conceived as an integral part of the museum visit, extending the multiple experiences to which visitors are invited to avail themselves during their discovery of the exhibitions in one of the country’s most beautiful pieces of architecture. A meal or snack in the Mudam Café may equally be an end in itself for holders of a Mudami Card providing free entry to Mudam.
From noon to 3pm, the Mudam Café offers tasty cuisine composed of regional products and local specialities. Whether starters, main dishes or desserts, the art of eating well is tasted on a daily basis thanks to the freshness of the products allied with the marriage of flavours and an original presentation. The new “à la carte” menu is varied and doesn't forget to include a vegetarian and vegan offer without gluten as well. The suggestions being renewed every day, while a different Luxembourg speciality is offered every month.
Mudam Café also provides (Thursdays and Fridays from 3pm to 7pm and Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 3pm to 5pm) ‘fast food’ including home-made soups, quiches, snacks and desserts. The drinks menu is extensive and caters to all tastes: a variety of teas, coffees, organic fruit juices and lemonade, cocktails, wines from the Moselle (and the rest of the world) and a rich selection of Luxembourg beers at reasonable prices. The Mudam Café is also renowned for its brunch formulas (traditional and vegan lactose free) on Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 3pm.
