    • Belgian Fried Chicken Mondays

      First Monday of the Month

      It’s the First Monday of most every month —Belgian Fried Chicken Night! You might not find fried chicken on many menus on Brussels, but you might wish that you did after tasting this! It’s not historically a staple of the Belgian culinary scene, but we thought we’d change that. The preparation changes from month to month. November’s BFC is:

      Buttermilk-soaked fried chicken thighs w/cornbread stuffing waffle, creamed brussels sprouts, Maredsous Brune 8 cranberry mostarda & pickled cauliflower.

      Dinnertime starts at 5pm on Mondays. The dish is $18 and the Maredsous pairing +$5.
