Brasserie de la Paix in Anderlecht



I did it again! 
I was on the road without my camera!
I thought I would concentrate on dinner and conversation instead of looking around for photo ops.  At the sight of the reflection of the light fixture in the window of Brasserie de la Paix, however, I couldn't help myself and pulled out my telephone for the shot at the top.
Colleague blogger, Filip, describes this restaurant as the meat temple. Indeed, it is located right in front of the Slaughterhouse (L'abattoir) d'Anderlecht, where local butchers and restaurant cooks select the best and freshest cuts in the early mornings. 
The restaurant has a Michelin star.  Its personnel are capable, low key and friendly. They make you feel very much at home in a typically Brussels way of conviviality!
I guess meat lovers go there but, as Filip says and shows (he posted mouthwatering pictures of the degustation menu), if you are a bit more adventurous, you are up for a treat and will be surprised.
