Gastronomic Adventure in Brussels
Gastronomy in Brussels
Brussels is not only famous for its wide selection of beers, but also for its top-rated restaurants. This city is considered as one of the gourmet capitals of Europe – having 16 Michelin-starred restaurants. It also ranks fifth for having the most number of Gault-Millau toques. Known as the Oscars of the restaurant world, the Michelin Red Guide gives a rating of 1 to 3 stars to the world’s most outstanding restaurants based on their superb menu and wine list.
With that being said, wine plays an important role in any restaurant aiming to get a Michelin star. According to Marks and Spencer’s wine buyer, Chris Murphy, some restaurants and pubs don’t go for the right wines and that affects people’s perception. He added, “I’d like them to sell better quality wine, and some do this. But many don’t, they don’t stock fresh wine, too many don’t understand vintage. Not many people do.”
Having the right combination of food and wine, people can now experience an unforgettable gastronomic adventure in Brussels. Here are some of the city’s top Michelin-starred restaurants where you can start your palate’s journey:
