The name of the restaurant is related to: « the baumes of venice » , a delicious soft white muscatel wine . In contrast of what the name could suggest, the wine isn’t from venice, but from a village in the vaucluse (south of france) , called baumes de venise.
This wine also exists in red and suits particularly well to the dishes the chef prepares in the restaurant.
Aux Beaumes de Venise is an elegant, Parisian brasserie-styled restaurant with a warm and friendly setting in Ixelles, close to place Brugmann.
A surprising list of wines has been selected to accompany the dishes by friend and « first sommelier of Belgium » Yves Catulle.
