TWO6TWO is located at 262 Route d'Arlon in Strassen, just a stone's throw from the Belle Etoile shopping centre. Access is either through the SMETS store, or from the side of the shop, up the stairs to the first floor. First impressions are of a trendy and chic eatery, bright with wooden floor and red and white furnishings, spaciously laid out. During the daytime there is a panoramic view out over the fields which adds to the relaxing atmosphere inside. We counted seats for 40, with tables set for 2, 4, 6 and 8 diners.
The choice may not be huge, but that makes ordering easy. While one is mulling through the menu - a choice of the Menu du marché (€30 for 2 courses or €35 for 3 courses) or A la carte - this is an ideal time to take one of the many cocktails as an aperitif.
We tried a number of dishes, including an introductory appetiser of fried calamar in breadcrumbs with homemade horseradish sauce, followed by a starter of Smoked salmon with gravlax (a mustard sauce). The fish dish was langoustine with artichoke and delicate pasta, with the meat dish of pigeon with fois gras - truly succulent! To finish off, we had a raspberry and blueberry dessert with raspberry sorbet, and a vanilla mousse and chocolate dessert sandwiching a coffee sorbet. All petite portions but the quality of the French cuisine shone through every mouthful.
