About Les Brigittines
Located right at the bottom of the Sablon, one of the most central part of old Brussels, what strikes you first is the typical, out of time decoration, very “art nouveau” with old polished wood, a beautiful bar and dimmed lights. It feels good during our cold and grey Belgian winters, and it feels like a jump back in times the rest of the year.
The food is typical, classical and sometimes plain old fashion but everything is cooked perfectly and homemade. Personally I go there for the amazingly good “Vol-au-vent”, and at the right season for the “Zenne pot”, THE signature dish of Dirk Myny, who apart from being one of the most inspired chefs in Brussels, is also a very keen wine lover (especially anything good in magnum!)
The wine selection is particularly strong on Alsace but you find a good mix of everything, rather French but always with names you can trust, and most important even though the list is not massive, every wine is a true gastronomic companion to the hearty food the restaurant offers.
