Brussels restaurants

Brussels restaurants have a dizzying number of awards, but it's not all classical French food anymore. Belgium is a little behind in the pan-Euro movement toward culinary experimentation, but it's catching up, assisted by a handful of ambitious, design-minded restaurateurs who are helping to push the envelope. Be warned: Eating out here is not cheap. If you tire of sticker shock, try these strategies: Picnic in the many parks; or drink your lunch, beer fans (maybe absorbing the brews with the national dish of moules-frites). You could also visit a frietkot (a fries stand), serving nothing but crisp, double-fried potato sticks with any amount of mostly mayonnaise-based sauces. That's if you can find one, sadly many of these national treaures have been closed down.
