BRUSSELS, BELGIUM - MAY-13-2010 - Belgian opulence as expressed in design and in food meet in the fittingly named Belga Queen (Rue Fossé aux Loups 32; 32-2-217-21-87; belgaqueen.be). With a background in interior design and cooking, owner Antoine Pinto is the Danny Meyer of Brussels, operating a string of stylish and successful eateries around town, including this bustling brasserie. Under the vaulted, 19th-century stained glass ceiling of a former bank, Belga Queen focuses on regional produce prepared in earthy French style. Standouts include local Namur snails and savory wood mushrooms atop puffed pastry (16 euros), a trio of duck including a rich terrine, and silky liver both smoked and seared (20 euros), and tartare of Charolais beef (23 euros).
