Sofitel Brussels Europe - Luxury hotel - The 1040: Etterbeek’s Modern Brasserie

The 1040: Etterbeek’s Modern BrasserieThe Restaurant

The Restaurant

On the roof of the hotel, our bees forage on herbs and aromatic plants grown on site, to provide the honey that will be used in the recipes, desserts, breakfast buffets & cocktails. The chef, Jean-Philippe Watteyne, and his team have also been foraging for the best of Belgian produce to serve a feast for the eyes and taste buds. The view on Leopold Park, the chef’s show cooking from his semi-open kitchen or the glassed wine cellar are also among the most seductive.
