comme chez soi

In 2002 we had the best meal (to that date) of our lives at Comme Chez Soi in Brussels.  It was then a three star Michelin restaurant and worthy of the accolades.  We knew it had lost a star in the intervening years as the old chef retired and a new one joined the team of the still family-owned restaurant.  However, we had such good memories of the warm welcome we had received that we wanted to return.

the menu from 2002-

the menu from 2015 -

And here are the photos of the lovely meal we had there on this trip-  we chose the tasting menu (all fish/seafood) and enjoyed it very much.  We also celebrated our return by having a bottle of excellent wine...

two plates of amuse bouches to start- cold then warm-

the shrimp course-

fabulous rouget -

the lobster course-

halibut - yum!

red fruit dessert and chocolate dessert- LOL

post desserts- LOL

the meal was fabulous and the welcome again terrifically warm and friendly- we had brought our menu from 2002 and several staff members came to look at it - commenting that they had been working there when we were there last - and what position they had held at that time... really lovely evening. It was a perfect farewell to Brussels.

We went back to the hotel and packed for our trip to Amsterdam the next day.  So stay tuned....
