Born in Sarregueminez in Moselle in 1959, Michael Roth began his cooking career at the age of 15 and became the Meilleur Apprenti (Best Apprentice) in France at just 18 years old. Throughout his career he had developed his talent in the most famous establishments and won the most prestigious prizes.
Terroirs de Lorraine was born from my wish to settle in my region. Lorraine is where my roots lie, where everything began in a family restaurant.
I consider the Metz station a symbol of going back to my origins. It is here that I wish to welcome you, in this place filled with history and memories, where you can surround yourself with authentic and delicious food. Together with my team we have developed a cuisine that is both simple and refined, combining dishes that greatly represent the Lorraine region and gastronomy. We use seasonal ingredients carefully selected for their quality.
The station is the entry-door to a region, to a new place. It is a place of constant movement where people cross paths with each other. With the restaurant Terroir de Lorraine, I want to turn the Metz station into a place of destination that opens up to the city. An unmissable place for all those who appreciate good food.
Born of the partnership between SSP France, SNCF Gares & Connexions and Chef Michel Roth, the Terroirs de Lorraine restaurant welcomes you for lunch or dinner at the heart of the Metz station, a place filled with history. This building opened in 1908 and due to its unique architecture was registered as a Historic Monument in 1975 and voted “France’s most beautiful train station” in 2017.
