Michelin star restaurants in Brussels 2012


Brussels, with its impressive 16 Michelin restaurants (a huge amount for such a small city, but still below the record-holder per capita: San Sebastian, culinary capital of the world), has now moved up to having three 2-star restaurants, thanks to the Chalet de la Foret’s additional star.

Check out the full list of Michelin one and two-star restaurants in Brussels, including a list of the Michelin Bib gourmand restaurants (i.e., good food at more affordable prices). [Bib Gourmand parentheses: Magenta and Notos have quite justifiably been removed from the Bib Gourmand list. Noteworthy picks that have maintained their status: Le Ventre Saint-Gris, De la Vigne a l’Assiette, and Mamy Louise.]

If you’re looking to Michelin on a budget and want to make about/at least 50% savings, go for the lunch menus (weekdays only – many of these top restaurants close on weekends). A few examples (all two-stars) in order of preference based on price-quality ratio:

Le Chalet de la Foret – Only EUR 39!! This is ridiculously cheap for a two-star restaurant… They probably still have their one-star prices, so hurry up before they decide to capitalize on that extra star…

Seagrill [don’t bother clicking through; the website has been under construction forever]. Make sure you make a reservation. EUR 65 for lunch.

Comme Chez Soi – EUR 55 for a 3-course lunch
