Buckshot in the Pheasant...must be fresh!

The ambiance of the restaurant is its strength. A bit hard to find with the GPS; we prevailed and had a nice lunch of veal, mushroom ravioli, and pheasant. The pheasant had buckshot in it, and unlike America, the server/manager did not seem to care other than to shrug his shoulders and feigned some sort of apology . . . at least we knew the bird was fresh! (and no teeth were cracked) Our son was not thrilled with the mushroom ravioli as it was light on sauce . . . more broth than cream. Veal was very nice. Service was excellent by Belgium standards. Prices were high by U.S. standards, but mid-level by Belgium. Glad we went, but not an establishment I'd put on my "return to" list.
