AUX ARMES DE BRUX­ELLES

Business Traveler (USA) - - LIFESTYLES -

Brussels in­sti­tu­tion Aux Armes spe­cial­izes in tra­di­tional Bel­gian cui­sine and is packed ev­ery day. Lo­cated just off the Grand Place, the present restau­rant and its cozy art deco in­te­ri­ors date back to 1921, but this has been the site of a tav­ern for cen­turies. Mus­sels are served in a steam­ing pot with a moun­tain of frites for € 26 ($36), while food­ies should try wa­ter­zooi, a hearty chicken stew that costs € 19 ($26), or an­guilles au vert – eels cooked in a rich pars­ley sauce – € 28 ($38). The crêpes are the­atri­cally flam­béed with Man­darine Napoleon liqueur for € 13 ($18).
