Flooded with light, bright and open – the Mirage Bistrot opens a new gastronomic and cultural oasis in Wedding. In the heart of the former workers’ district, the French bistro opened its doors in July 2017. Carefully selected offers and the outstanding quality of typical French products are connected to the splendor of the former French sector. There is a selected breakfast and lunch menu, all fresh and quickly prepared. Attention is paid to details, in the spirit of traditional, sophisticated French cuisine. In addition, sustainable juices and a first-class coffee with excellent flavor can be found. In the evening, the bistro transforms into a cozy tapas bar. There are French and Mediterranean tapas, excellent wines (supplied by the neighboring delicatessen L’Épicerie) and selected Belgian beers. On Thursday evenings hot tapas are served from the oven, such as Tarte Flambée, Truffade, or French oven cheese. On Sundays and Saturdays, enjoy a leisurely à la carte brunch and try out Egg Benedict or Croque Monsieur. Reservation is recommended!
The bistro directly at the Nettelbeckplatz invites you with its airy atmosphere and gives room for deceleration and to recharge your batteries. The large window front to the public square and the many green plants bring the flow of nature inside. This pleasant atmosphere creates the perfect location in Wedding for an exchange and inspiration. In addition to the gastronomic offer, there is a whole range of cultural activities with regular live concerts, film screenings and round tables. Here you will find a colorful mix of interesting and interested people, gourmets and young creatives, as well as long-standing neighbors. One of the windows houses the Vitrine Blanche, which features works by local designers and artists. On Friday evenings there are live acoustic concerts and jam sessions, musicians are invited to develop their own ideas. An important concern is to create new links in the neighborhood. Community actions such as a Diner en Blanc, food and vinyl flea markets on the square or live concerts at the Fête de la Musique are intended to give new impetus to the Nettelbeckplatz. The aim is to emerge from the anonymity of the big city and thus to strengthen the sense of community of the many identities resident in Wedding. The Mirage Bistrot – an oasis for Wedding – from Wedding.
