Sea Grill, Brussels

47 Rue du Fossé aux Loups
Belgium 1000
Tel: 32 2 227 3120's insider take:

Sea Grill has chilly, corporate-looking hotel dining rooms, with etched-glass tableaus of Norwegian fjords. But enough of the downside. This is widely held to be the best seafood restaurant in Belgium—even, some claim, in all of Europe. Yves Mattagne's dishes are classic preparations made just postmodern enough to fascinate: He'll underline sweet Dublin Bay prawns with crisped sweetbreads and a carrot emulsion, or he'll prepare the crustaceans in a half-carpaccio, half-tempura style with an avocado-citrus salad and punctuate the dish with exclamation points of ginger gelée. Roasted lobster has its richness doubled with marrowbone risotto; tuna is brilliant paired with sautéed goose liver; truffled mascarpone chicken jus acts as a sauce for the king crab. You'll forget to notice the terrible lighting. Men must wear long-sleeved shirts.

Closed Saturdays and Sundays.
