It took us a little while to step into Piccola Store. Maybe because it settled in the old Neptune, which we loved and miss so much, or maybe just because it sounded like one more italian restaurant in Brussels.
But after hearing so much good about it, we decided to try it ourselves on a saturday for lunch.
And what a beautiful surprise!

    It’s been about seven months now since the Osteria Bolognese opened Rue de la Paix. Giacomo, one of the owners directly saw in this tiny place with its big window a typical italian osteria, with just a couple of tables and a big glass counter where he’d display all the fresh produce directly imported from Bologne.

      Scotland was a complete unknown, apart from the usual clichés of kilts, haggis and the deep fried mars bar.

      It was a real shock : rolling vistas, that could have been sslands, vast plains, blue turquoise lochs, auburn and majestic mountains, all under a changing heavy gray sky.
      My favourites? Glencoe, the sumptuous highlands that cover in purple heather come spring and this address, on the road between Edinburgh and Fort William just after Callander, Mhor84.

        We walked into Beaucoup Fish during a cold winter day where the sun was timidly starting to shine. The whole place was filled with a soft light, brightening the green walls, marble bar and wooden tables while slowly warming our backs.

        As the name says, Beaucoup Fish is all about fish of course, seafood and that’s about it. They change their menu according to the market, putting fresh seafood forward. A concept that was definitely missing in Brussels.
