For its sixth year running, the Tram Experience is taking passengers through a tour of the city, all while sitting back with a glass of wine and enjoying a gourmet meal. Yes, that’s right, this restaurant is like no other you’ll find in the capital. You will get to enjoy a dynamic view of some of Brussels’ best monuments all with a 5-course meal that is selected and prepared from a variety of Brussels’ finest chefs.
Foodies will get a range of corresponding seasonal menus to enjoy and all with the individual stylings of each chef. Past chefs include Lionel Rigolet** (from restaurant Comme Chez Soi), and the young chef Kenzo Nakata (from Gramm), recently named promising young Brussels talent of the year by the renowned Gault&Millau guide.
The tram’s chef for this season? Loïc Villers. He began his career in Lyon at Paul Bocuse’s La Brasserie de l’Est. It was here that he discovered “la cuisine de voyage” (travel cooking).
He then joined Yves Mattagne’s team at Sea Grill for a year. Bolstered by this experience and driven by a desire to discover new horizons, he took on jobs as a private chef for celebrities such as Isabelle Adjani and Jean Réno before arriving in Brussels determined to make his childhood dream come true and open his own restaurant and has since opened Le Monde est Petit with his partner and the famous Michelin Guide awarded him a star in November 2014.
Six tours are offered each week, with all tours departing from Poelaert Square and lasting around 2 hours 45 minutes. So why not tour the city in style and see Brussels in a way that you’ve never seen before – dining onboard a tram!
