Welcome to Crème. After Coco Donuts and just before Bisou, this brunch hotspot, signed by the serial entrepreneur Chloé Sengier, has just undergone a fresh makeover.

As part of this transformation: an interior completely redesigned by Zazie Maquet Studio (Volta, Bisou) featuring green velvet banquettes, lacquered burgundy tables, and a bespoke dessert counter. It’s cozy, warm, and incredibly welcoming, mirroring the vibe of the team and the menu, which includes all the essentials one could expect from a brunch, lunch, or coffee break of this caliber.

Tonight, I’m taking you to La Général, a Brussels bistro transformed into a Mexican taqueria.

Here, every detail has been carefully thought of, especially the decor, which has been curated piece by piece. We’re particularly in love with the large poster of sun-faded palm trees, the paintings of Mexican wrestlers, and the enormous bouquets of flowers—more real than real. It’s only Tuesday night, but the restaurant is packed, and the atmosphere is already buzzing.

It’s been weeks since I’ve wanted to talk to you about Batch. And last night, I went back for the 6th or 7th time in just a few weeks, and joy of joys, they had just inaugurated their new menu. And like the previous one, everything was a favorite.

We did try to pick a favorite – maybe the beef tartare with caramelized onions (€16) or the Hokkaido pumpkin with tahini and zhoug (€14). Although, the confit trout with white butter (€19) was amazing too, and the stuffed cabbage with chestnuts and Parmesan emulsion (€18) was a delight.
There you go, I told you.
