Eating in Amsterdam and Brussels

My family and I will be travelling to Amsterdam and Brussels in August. Would someone be kind enough to offer a suggestion on where to eat in these cites? We are staying at the Pulitzer in Amsterdam and the Amigo in Brussels. Any help will be much appreciated.

It's been a while but I really liked Armand & Ko in Brussels. Other restaurants are mentioned here:

If you like Chinese food, I recommend Nan Kee, at Zeedijk #111, in the Chinatown section of Amsterdam, just down the street from the NieuweMarket & the Waag. There is nothing fancy about this restaurant, just good chinese food. I can't imagine visiting Amsterdam and not stopping in for their Tappan Noodles with Chicken and Vegetables....yum. Peace.

There are restaurants everywhere you look. What kind of food do you like? How much do you want to pay?

We enjoyed a rijstaffel ("rice table") at an Indonesian restaurant called Puri Mas in the Leidseplein area. We had the shared sampler (18 small dishes?) for around 18-19Euro per person, or close to that. It's up one flight of stairs - efficient service and good food.

We also like to eat at Hard Rock Café especially if we are jet-lagged and don't feel up to 'new' food that first evening. That is located just beyond Leidseplein near the Casino.

Sorry, should have included that both of the above are in Amsterdam.

If you want to enjoy excellent food in Brussels at moderate prices, you have to Get Away From The Grand'Place. There are a few exceptions in that area (like Belga Queen) but most of the restaurants are interchangeable and geared toward the tourist market. There are wonderful small restaurants in the more residential areas (the Chatelain neighborhood of Ixelles, for example, abounds in great little restaurants)...they can easily be reached by mass transit or taxi.
We are in the Loire Valley right now, so I don't have my phone book handy to give you addresses and phone numbers but here are some attractive neighborhood places:
Dolce Campagna (sp may be off), Double D, Entre Nous, La Poste, En Face de Parachute, Lola's (on the Sablon), Les Brasseries Georges, and Les Perles de Pluie.
