Being a huge lover of Italian cuisine and partly Italian himself, Guy carried out the whole MiTo project until its very opening. After having launched both Les Fils à Maman and Le Clan des Belges, it’s on rue Washington’s roundabout that, with both his partners, they opened this third spot in Brussels.

saturday and sunday from 3 to 10pm

As much as we did regret the closing of YAG*, we can only be glad that their team decided to launch Tarzan, a natural wine bar, in the exact same spot. Even though it has taken over their headquarters, it is nothing like what the previous restaurant used to be.

Or is the place to run to for a hot cup of coffee when the rain is pouring outside, or to sip an espresso on their little terrace while watching people go by rue Antoine Dansaert on a sunny day.
