Solo female diner in Brussels next week (oct 24-30)
I'm travelling to Brussels next week and would like to have some recommendations for solo, female diner. I prefer to go to places that does not require reservation, perhaps sit at the bar, and eat something that's really good but not requiring a 2hr+ dinner. Looking for recommendation in the St. Catharine, Grand Sablon, and near the Trone metro stop area that's <50euro for dinner. It'd be much preferred if the area feels safe after dark.
Meg Zimbeck, a Paris blogger and food expert, wrote an appealing post on a restaurant called Vismet, at 23 place Ste-Catherine, 1000 Brussels (Ste-Catherine). I haven't been, but I am interested in this for my trip in July. You can see the write up on Meg Zimbeck's website.
Noordzee is a wonderful place for lunch. You eat on the sidewalk standing at the counter or at a few high tables. It is a fish market where you can choose your fish and have it cooked right there. Delicious and inexpensive. Here is a link to their website:
