12 place fernand cocq, 1050 ixelles instagram 7 jours sur 7, de 7h30 à 21h30
For months now we’ve seen workers, suppliers and barmen come and go to the formerly known Republic brasserie on place Fernand Cocq. And as the months flew by, we saw the Belgian restaurant progressively turn into what seems to be the perfect place for our next nights out.
Today, on the place Fernand-Cocq, the works are finished. A new bar, carrying almost the same name, is now opening its doors. If, like us, you couldn’t help but stick your nose against the window during these last months, you should already have quite a good idea of what’s coming.

The pizza dough is what stands out at Standard. The toppings aren’t bad either, and we truly enjoyed both our pizzas, sitting uncomfortably in my car, but the dough, mamma mia. We’re not an Italian restaurant, said Michel, the manager of the group’s new establishments. That may be true, but the pizzaïolo is Italian, and it is him that we remember. You could feel he made his sourdough dough with love, when he cut our pizza with scissors, in order to show us the holes formed in the crust. And that was truly beautiful, and it’s also what made us want to come back, to eat our pizzas installed at one of the small tables at Standard this time.
