Fodor's Expert Review The Glorious
You probably think beer when you think Belgium, but this tiny French-influenced restaurant is all about the wine; each month focuses on a different wine region. Early 20th-century decor, vibrant jewel-tone colors, and jazzy music set the scene for an ambitious but small menu with a strong focus on fresh fish and well-aged beef. For the best deal, try the three-course menu, offered at both lunch (€43) and dinner (from €69)—although be sure to splurge on the sommelier's suggested wine pairings. If all that food makes you sleepy, stay in one of the three adjoining Glorious Fashion Inn Suites after a nightcap of homemade jenever (Dutch gin).
