Brussels Bistro Restaurant Review

: Traditional Belgian bistro food served with panache is hard to find in Orange County. But in a cool subterranean space right on downtown Laguna’s Forest Avenue, you can experience the Belgian “bon vivant” attitude, food and drink, along with live entertainment. Mussels, usually a summertime delicacy in Europe’s lowlands, can be found year-round at this lively eatery, as guests can enjoy an endless pot of mussels and Belgian fries for a reasonable price. If you want to sample more regional specialties, start with the “assiette de dégustation,” which features a Belgian-style appetizer assortment of deep-fried croquettes and pomme frites with two dipping sauces, along with Gouda cheese. Entrées are a bit more traditionally French in nature, such as a veal chop with braised Belgian endive. The compact nature of the beer list, which features several Belgian brews, may surprise those in search of a wide variety.
