LE RESTAU­RANT DU MIM

Business Traveler (USA) - - LIFESTYLES -

MIM is the Mu­si­cal In­stru­ments Mu­seum, housed in a mon­u­men­tal steel and glass art nou­veau build­ing in Mont des Arts. The price­less collection of in­stru­ments is well worth a tour, but you can also take the el­e­va­tor di­rectly to the top-floor restau­rant, where the breath­tak­ing views stretch from the royal palace and Magritte Mu­seum to the Grand Place and opera house. In sum­mer, dine on the sunny ter­race; in win­ter, stay in­side the glass cupola. The cui­sine doesn’t quite match the grand panorama, so play it safe and stick to sim­ple dishes such as steak frites, gratin de chicons, en­dives, or a big salad with goats’cheese and ba­con. Main dishes cost € 14-€20 ($19-$28), and the dish of the day is € 12 ($17). A pop­u­lar € 28 ($38) cham­pagne brunch is served on Sun­days. BT
