Cock & Bowl Coming Soon

March 22, 2010

As previously noted, Belgique Gourmande has been sold and a new restaurant is about to open in its stead. The new restaurant will be known as the Cock & Bowl and the new owners plan on taking the Belgium theme and running with it. In their own words, here is a tastebud teasing preview of what’s to come:

“It’s all shiny clean and brightly decorated, with an eclectic mix of Euro-Belgian-French stuff we have collected over our travel years.”

“Our concept is to be casual & fun “Mussels and Fries” joint, a variety of mussel flavors, the real-deal fresh cut & twice-cooked frites and mayo, and fresh-baked crusty bread for dipping. Other bistro fare to include salads, sandwiches, classic appetizers & waffles, and a daily special board for the chef to pull together something according to season & whimsy.”

“30+ Belgian beers, and a nice selection of tasty and affordable small production wines. Our kitchen is TINY, so our focus is very tight. Our layout is quirky, so our service is to be very casual. We just love the patio!”

    I went here with a friend today and they were so friendly and the food was delicious (I had fries and the potato-beer soup, she had mussels). We're going back for dinner we liked it so much.
