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.
Situated in a quit neighborhood in the east of brussels , and in an atmosphere of a restaurant from the early 1900, the mucha restaurant proposes » french bourgeois cuisine » and some italian dishes.
The seasonal suggestions changes each 6 weeks as well as their 3 services menu (34,50€ or 53,50€ with the aperitif, a 1/2 bottle of wine, and coffee).
When the weather allows it, they have a quiet and very pleasant terrace.
Just a few steps away from Magritte museum or the royal palace you will find the museum of music instruments.
Housed in a beautiful art nouveau structure of which one part is Art Nouveau and the other, neoclassical in design, the museum exposes on 4 floors more than 7000 musical instruments including everything from the bizarre to the beautiful.
In addition the museum of musical instruments has a concert hall, a space for workshops (for groups and by reservation only), a museum shop, a library and a rooftop restaurant, from where the breathtaking view over the city gives a unique flavour to the menu. Since May 2015, violin maker Thomas Meuwissen established a permanent workshop, freely accessible to all.
Don’t miss a trip to the top of the structure where you can get a magnificent panorama of Brussels!
