Foodies, you’ll enjoy this restaurant!
I recently discovered with my dear mum, the excellent restaurant Chez Montaigne, Place Brugmann 27.
My family and friends say I’m picky about food, but I don’t think so. I prefer the quality of products than some extravagant associations and sauces that kill the essence of the taste of each ingredient …
I like to be a bit surprised, but not too much! In other words, it’s quite challenging for the chef (LOL)! We sit inside because it’s raining on the terrace (pictures 1 & 5).
The decor is white and minimalist, a painting by Jean-Luc Moerman roughly recalls the French philosopher Montaigne. The light softens gradually as the evening progresses. We arrived early and will leave among the last (a good sign).
Great first meals
My mother chooses a salad of beets sliced very thin with chew, a half fig and hazelnut. Really delicious (picture above)!
As always, I don’t like to experiment and I choose a more conventional dish with thin avocado slices, parsley and lobster, perfectly seasoned (picture 2). Lovely presentation: many colors in the plate! And impeccable service both professional and friendly!
Then we order fish
served with lentils, asparagus and tomatoes. The cooking is perfect and the dish is simple and tasty as I like. The large plates are not roborative.
After a long hesitation, we share a delicious homemade ice cream with vanilla (picture below).
