The 5 most original restaurant concepts in Brussels

1) Barge

Local foodies agree that Barbara and Grégoire have created a downtown Brussels restaurant that is almost perfect. The couple have taken over a former cafe in a forgotten neighbourhood and transformed it into a cool urban spot with exposed brick and sober furniture. People come here for the relaxed setting and the downtown buzz. But they are equally charmed by Grégoire’s creative cooking based on organic produce from local farms, along with Barbara’s offbeat wine list.
