Three chefs from the L’Air du Temps group of restaurants which have restaurants in Brussels have teamed up with The Hotel Brussels to offer safe dinners at the hotel given that the restaurants in Belgium remain closed.
From March 25 to April 24, chefs Valerie Borriero of San Sablon, Toshiro Fujii of restaurant Toshiro and Kevin Perlot of restaurant VerTige will take turns taking over the kitchens of The Hotel Brussels to share the values and vision of their Brussels restaurants.
Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, they will each offer a 4-course menu with wine pairing that can be enjoyed in the comfort of a room that has been transformed especially for the occasion into a private restaurant.
Guests will upon arrival receive two keys. While one opens the door to their room, the other gives them access to one of the Deluxe Panorama Room which offers breathing views over the Belgian capital.
The event called Side by Sight will start of March 25. The first chef will be Kevin Perlot. He will be followed the day after by Valerio Borriero and Toshiro Fujii the next day.
Restaurants in Belgium have been closed since October and the government has indicated that they will only be able to reopen (if conditions permit) in May. The sector has been hard hit in the pandemic and Brussels restauranteurs have been particularly critical of the little support they have received in comparison to their counterparts in the other regions of Belgium.
Earlier this month, another Brussels hotel launched a similar initiative in collaboration with Kevin Lejeune of restaurant Le Canne en Ville.
The price for the 4-course menu including wine pairing plus overnight stay and breakfast for 2 people is EUR 475.
