Situated on Brussels' “Restaurant Row” Aux Armes de Bruxelles is unique and ranks above the rest. No one stands outside trying to hustle you inside, they are much too classy for that! The attire is formal and the food is classic fine Belgian cuisine. They are known for their seafood and particularly the mussels cooked in white wine. Opened in 1921 by an ambitious young chef named Calixte Veulemans, Aux Armes de Bruxelles has gained a large number of loyal local patrons as well as a wait and kitchen staff of over 60 people, many of whom have been with the restaurant for years. The restaurant is large and has multiple rooms, but unless you want a long wait, reservations are certainly recommended.
