The chef, who worked alongside Sang-Hoon Degeimbre, is one of the capital’s most promising talents. Here, you won’t find fresh tomatoes in the middle of winter, the chef makes it a point of honor to offer seasonal cuisine. Its return-from-the-market menu, served at lunchtime from Wednesday to Saturday, costs only 29 euros for two courses.

A high quality menu at the price of 35 euros: the lunch formula offered by the gastronomic restaurant Barge on Friday lunchtimes has something to seduce us! In this bright, raw and authentic room, you can enjoy local and contemporary seasonal cuisine. Each plate tells a wonderful local story. It must be said that Barbara Hoornaert and Grégoire Gillard, the duo behind the project, know their products and the craftsmen with whom they work inside out. Each dish is of rare finesse, balance and subtlety. The chef juggles with cooking, techniques and textures. He regularly sprinkles his dishes with lacto-fermented vegetables, a tribute to Sang-Hoon Degeimbre, his former mentor.
