Volef's, Antwerp

23 Oude Leeuwenrui
Belgium 2000
Tel: 32 3213 3333's insider take:

This soothing space in the obscure Oude Leeuwenrui neighborhood offers seasonal dishes with a subtle Asian twist. Creations such as claypot-steamed quail with eggplant, zucchini and salted-citron rice, and sashimi with yuzu dressing are a refreshing break from beef and butter-laden Belgian fare. All of Volef's dishes are served in handmade ceramics. In the summer, the Japanese-inspired courtyard makes a terrific sanctuary, but if it's overcast, which it often is, the main dining room's vivid Tiffany-blue walls are a great way to combat the ubiquitous shades of gray.

Open Mondays through Fridays noon to 3 pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays 6 to 10 pm.
