About

Founded in 2012 by Chloé Roose & Sarah Cisinski, BrusselsKitchen.com is an online restaurant guide, gathering the best spots to eat out in Brussels – healthy lunch joints, incredible wine bars, hearty brunches but also up and coming venues with talented soon-to-be michelin starred chefs.
Brussels may be an obvious destination for foodlovers, it should also be remembered for its style. Brussels’ Kitchen highlights venues with stories we love to tell, where we could stop for a quick coffee or hang out all day, where we love admiring the small details making the place as charming as it gets, and where we could spend hours talking and talking to the owners.
Venues that we simply and truly love, that we would keep to ourselves if we didn’t want to share them so badly. Beautiful people, producers, cooks, architects, designers… all doing their work with passion, always choosing the best for their customers. And finally the never-ending journey to discover Brussels, over and over again, through our eyes and our tastebuds.

In 2017, we released our first book with 90 of our most recommended places to eat in the Belgian capital, as well as 6 exclusive interviews, published by Racine. You can order it online directly through this link.

2019 is a new start for Brussels’ Kitchen. The duo split but Chloé will keep on running Brussels’ Kitchen, documenting all the best places to eat out in Brussels and throwing more incredible food events.

Events

Le Brunch Club
Each month, 7 chefs from Brussels get together at Humphrey restaurant to offer a fantastic 7 course vegetarian brunch, along with amazing natural wines from Titulus Pictus, cold pressed organic juices from Misuko and filter coffee from Or Espressobar. It’s called “Le Brunch Club, by Brussels’ Kitchen”. The perfect occasion to sit with friends or family, and discover 7 chefs during a unique tasting menu. You’ll find all the coming dates on our facebook page, under the tab event.

    Hey there. My sister, who has been living in Brussels for years, just showed me your blog and it is absolutely stunning. Can
    I ask who designed your blog? Thanks, Sophia

    hi there, sorry – i’ll write in english!

    I love your reviews and i always read your site when something special is coming up, or if i’d just like to go for a drink in a different part of town, at a different bar – somewhere interesting or out of the ordinary..

    I have a question..how do you choose your locations? I found an amazing bar tonight, but wouldn’t want to share it!

    kind regards,

    becky

      Hi Becky,

      thanks for your message! well Im really curious about that amazing bar now…!

      We pick our locations very simply.. is it love at first sight, do we feel good in that place, do we love both the food and the setting (very important)? Eventually, it became only one simpler question… is it Brussel’s Kitchen or not? And usually we can figure it out pretty quickly!

      Please tell me more about your fantastic bar!

    Hey, I just discovered your website today while looking for a restaurant in Brussels. I really like it! Beautiful pictures and great reviews. I’ll definitely be following you girls in the future!
    Greetings, Marijs

    Same here, just found your website and I love the reviews. The pictures are stunning as well! I do want to share my favourite spaces as far as they are not in your blog yet: Café de la Presse, especially because they are very child friendly, however waiting can be long and seating difficult to find AND around Flagey le Superfilles du tram (http://www.superfillesdutram.com/nl/) a great burger place with real American buns which make your burger so much lighter! They even serve burgers with foie gras)

    Hey there,
    it would be really great if you made tags or categories, because I am looking for only organic restaurants and it would be great to have them all in a list or page.

    thanks

    Hi, We are visiting Brussels soon but one of us has a gluten free diet.. Do you have any reccomendations on any gluten free friendly restaurants??

    Thanks in advance!

    • Brussels Kitchen Chloé says:

      Hey Rob, actually tons of places will adapt their menu if you tell them. For instance we re thinking of Le 203, humphrey, Hortense or even La petit prod who have lots of options without gluten, and will accommodate if necessary.
      On the pasta side of things, La Gazzeta, Café al dente and Tontons all have gluten free pasta if you ask them.
      All of the addresses are listed on our website of course 😉

      Cheers!
