Mundo Pain, Brussels

20 Rue Jean Stasstraat
Tel: 537 9700's insider take:

Though it sounds like an unreleased Russ Meyer movie, this is, in fact, that ubiquitous scene-setter Antoine Pinto's newly launched answer to the Pain Quotidien chain of bread-and-things. Handily off the shopping strip of Avenue Louise, it's less like a country idyll and more like a Stanley Kubrick set with its black marble tables and its stylized figures inset into blue walls. Breads are multifarious—light, dark, multigrain, malted, gluten-free, spiced, olive, brioche—and all baked in-house. Call it Pain Quotidien for Marni-wearers.
