Restaurants in Brussels

Brussels is one of the best-supplied cities for good food in Europe. There’s classic European cuisine and food from all over the world right next to each other; go to Bij den Boer on the Quai aux Briques for the original mussels from Brussels – the best in the city, by reputation, in a town that does mussels like New England does clams.

For a taste of the world brought to Belgium by its coterie of African immigrants, look to the Matonge district, home of the Belgo Belge, on the Rue de la Paix Vredestraat. This is one restaurant serving up African flavors. There’s also a jumping Latin American quarter, exemplified by Archy’s, the tiny Latin American bistro on the Rue Longue Vie. Restaurants in Brussels will keep your belly full.

If none of that takes your fancy, Brussels restaurants can also accommodate a taste for classic Belgian fare. La Quicaillerie, on Rue du Page, a converted hardware store, provides great Belgian food in an environment that’s edgy enough to feel fresh, there’s an international crowd and the lounge bar downstairs has a great reputation.
