Lux, Antwerp

13 Adriaan Brouwerstraat
Belgium 2000
Tel: 32 3233 3030's insider take:

Don't leave town without having a meal at Lux, which offers one of the city's most sumptuous and priciest dinners, but also one of its most affordable prix fixe lunches (around $30 with glass of wine, excluding Saturdays). Housed in an 18th-century Polish shipping warehouse in the rapidly gentrifying Het Eilandje (Docklands) neighborhood, the grand space recalls Antwerp's merchant wealth with extravagant Corinthian columns made of Belgian marble, walnut paneling, 15-foot ceilings festooned with gilded crown moldings, and fine Belgian linens laid across black lacquered tables. Not to be outdone by the opulent surroundings, Chef Bert Zaman's Med-Flemish fusion cuisine—cod with mustard and Hoegaarden sauce, and salt-crusted lamb with candied Belle de Fontenay potatoes—remains the true star.

Open daily noon to 3 pm and 6 to 11 pm.
