Newly revived Art-Deco brasserie with a Michelin-star chef.

The BOZAR brasserie has been closed and gathering dust for the last 10 years, but finally its Art Deco interior — designed by legend architect Victor Horta in 1928 — was restored to its former glory and reopened in December 2010.

Food and drink

Simple, elegant French/Belgian classics whipped up by head chef David Martin and his team in the open kitchen. The wine list is simplified by being split into taste sections, eg: ‘spicy and rich’ or ‘fresh and aromatic’.

Recommended dishes

The entrecote cooked over Argentine coals looked very good. And save some room for the coffee profiteroles drizzled in salted caramel butter or the, typically Belgian, rice pudding sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.

Ambience

Locals — mainly couples and groups of friends — pop in before attending a theatre performance or dance recital in the BOZAR halls. It’s smart but not stuffy.

Service

The waiters are fast and very professional.

Location

Inside the BOZAR (Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles) building; the entrance linking it to the main building was closed when I visited, so you’ll have to use the door located on Rue Baron Horta.

Price advice

Starters cost in the region of 10—16 euros; mains 19—23 euros; and desert roughly 9 euros. They offer a special lunch menu: one course costs 13 euros, two courses 23 euros.
