Brussels has al­ways been one of Europe’s hid­den se­crets when it comes to gourmet din­ing. The Bel­gian cap­i­tal is a des­ti­na­tion that sur­prises with its in­fi­nite va­ri­ety and mix of fla­vors. French food here can be un­be­liev­ably bet­ter than in France it­self, while Bel­gian cui­sine has a lot more to of­fer than the tra­di­tional fare.

And this is one of Europe’s most cos­mopoli­tan cap­i­tals, with a kalei­do­scope of eth­nic restaurants re­flect­ing the dif­fer­ent na­tion­al­i­ties work­ing around the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion head­quar­ters, and the vi­brant mix of im­mi­grants from all over the world.

The city boasts a host of cre­ative restaurants that are forg­ing a very in­di­vid­ual iden­tity for Bel­gian cui­sine. Here’s a quar­tet of din­ing venues that range from tried and true gas­tro­nomic ad­dresses to gourmet hot spots.
