Around 1900, the Arnsbourg was a forestry workers’ house and a hostel for coal workers and lumberjacks. M. Klein’s grandmother transformed it into a small family boarding house, then his mother turned it into a gourmet restaurant winning its first star in 1988.
M. Klein succeeded his mother at 40, after his hotel management studies. His techniques are all self taught and he enjoys innovating and creating, as can be seen in his food.
His aim is to create a constantly-changing cuisine which is full of flavour with a delicate touch of the emotions.
