LES FILLES PLAISIRS CULINAIRES
Three friends who joined forces, a well-designed space and mouthwatering recipes. It all adds up to one of the best restaurant concepts in Brussels! Les Filles have moved from their abode in Saint-Gilles into a beautiful town house in the centre of Brussels where they serve excellent food in a convivial atmosphere.
Every time I go back to Les Filles, it feels as if I’m visiting a friend. Ring the bell in the entrance and enter through the imposing front door. On the ground floor, you’ll find a little epicerie selling great foodie products and Les Filles’ atelier where their cooking courses take place. Upstairs it’s the dining space where lunch and dinner are served during weekdays. I love the details here: big windows that let plenty of light in, long wooden communal tables, high ceilings and old framed pictures hanging on the walls. The menu changes daily and all dishes are made with seasonal, organic ingredients. Nothing fancy or innovative, just really good homey food.
Take a seat and wait for the starters to be served – three fixed dishes (typically, soup, a light salad and homemade terrine) to whet your appetite. When it’s time to move on to main course and dessert, head for the buffet and help yourself with as many servings as you wish – just like at home! Come weekend it’s all about brunch and this place is indeed one of the best brunch spots in Brussels! I would strongly recommend a reservation as it does get rather busy but you won’t be disappointed. Brunch includes an all-you-can-eat buffet, where there’s pretty much everything you’re looking for – eggs, croissants, jam and butter, yoghurt, fresh fruits, salad, ham and cheese plus a meat dish that can cure even the meanest hangover.
If you’re looking for a great little spot for a relaxed lunch or dinner in the centre of Brussels, give Les Filles a go. And if you’re too busy or lazy to go out, have their tasty dishes delivered to you through Deliveroo.
