Must-Do on a Tuesday: Jazz Night at Cafe Belge

There’s music, there’s conversation and there is great food. The newly-launched Jazz Night at Café Belge is exactly the excuse you need to step out for a chilled out evening on a Tuesday night after a hard day’s work.

The soothing strains of Jazz by the bandJazz Par Trois welcome you as you step into the stylish restaurant that reflects the pizzazz of 1920s Brussels with its interiors embellished with art nouveau details, high bar stools, lamps and the works. The newly formed band, we are informed, consists of a trio of experienced musicians, including vocalist Alice Grace (formerly of London’s Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club), Café Belge’ resident saxophonist Adam Long, and a guitarist. Together they create an ambiance that adds a touch of magic and class to a relaxed, fun-filled evening where the servers go out of your way to make the experience memorable.

The new A la Carte Menu of classic Belgian delicacies has been designed to spoil your taste buds. The new highlights include Beef Short Rib Cromesquis, Poached John Dory with beetroot, purple potatoes, turnip, fava beans and Hoegaarden cream, and Vegetable Tartine with Boursin cheese and mixed raw, roasted and pickled vegetables. We tried the prawn cocktails which was a tad disappointing as the prawns, though fresh was a bit undercooked. However, the mussels in curried sauce was great perhaps because of its Asian flavours. The desserts were outright winners - Chocolate Mousse with chocolate brownie cubes, and sugar brioche bread pudding with vanilla raisin ice cream, to name just a few. A sweet end to a complete experience – Tuesday nights couldn’t get any better!
