From June 1 until June 5, 2016, for five days, gastronomy will reign supreme in Brussels.

Each day the 10 chefs will treat 220 guests to a delicious lunch (12H30) and 2 dinners (19H30 & 21H30) high in the Brussels’ sky.

The menu will change regularly with the seasons, but is always made of 16 different choices that are written on big ardoises on the walls.There will always be 4 choices of meet or fish , 4 of starch (carbs) , 4 of vegetables and 4 suggestions.

When you’ll arrive at the quartier libre, you will find a pen and a grid on each table to be able to cross the 4 dishes you’d like to eat.

Be careful to book a table if you plan to eat there, the place is generally crowded!

The concept worked so well, they actually opened a second « quartier libre » a few blocks away from the first one.

Aux Beaumes de Venise

17Nov

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.

With its veranda and little garden, it is the perfect spot for a dinner together. It serves refined, seasonal French cuisine, prepared by the chef and accompanied by the wines recommended by his wife.
With 15 years of experience and mentions in the Michelin and Delta Guides, Sabine, Abdel Bouassab and their team deliver gastronomic French cuisine for the most demanding palates.

A surprising list of wines has been selected to accompany the dishes by friend and « first sommelier of Belgium » Yves Catulle.

Their menu changes each month.
It is open from Tuesday to Saturday, lunchtime and evening.
More information is available by our staff, or visit their website (in french only).
