Belgium Advice - Brussels, Gent, Bruges, and Antwerp

DougOLis | Sep 26, 2012 01:43 PM

I'm heading to Belgium for a week in early October and have done a fair amount of research, but am a bit conflicted on making my final decisions and could use some advice.

I already have reservations at In De Wulf and Oud Sluis so my fancy restaurants are pretty well covered but I might consider adding another one.

Here are some of the places I was considering in each of the cities. Any thoughts on them? Preferences? Any I'm missing? In particular I'd like to find a place with great moules frites.

Bruges:
Hertog Jan
Tete Pressee
De Karmeliet
Ronnie Jonkman
Siphon
De Bistronoom
Bistro Den Huzaar
De Stove
Cambrinus
Den Dyver
De Gastro
Cafedraal

Brussels:
Le Fourneau
De Heeren van Liedekercke
Les Brassins
Neutnigenough
Brasserie le Macon
Lola
Museumbrasserie
La Bonne Humeur
Maison Antoine
't Kelderke
Le Pre Sale
Rachel
Le Bier Circus
Bonsoir Clara

Antwerp - I got nothing

Ghent:
C-Jean
Max
De Vitrine

My research on breweries/beer bars is pretty well complete and prioritized.

Found a few cheese shops in Gent mentioned (Schollaert, Mekka, Het Hinkelspel, Ledeberg) but are there any better ones in the other cities?

Outside of Liege, where can I find good Liege Waffles?

Any preferences among these Chocolatiers I was considering?
Brussels - Pierre Marcolini, Le Saint Aulaye, Wittamer, Mary's, Alex & Alex, AM Sweet
Bruges - The Chocolate Line, Van Tillborgh

Thanks!
