Yves Mattagne, a Michelin-starred Belgian chef, will be cooking in a pop-up restaurant opposite the Magritte Museum on the Place Royale in Brussels from 6 March.
For two and a half months, Mattagne will be cooking in the restaurant while he waits for the reopening of his own restaurant, La Villa Lorraine in Bois de la Cambre. From 22 February, a new kitchen and bar will be installed, and will be ready for use at the beginning of May, reports Bruzz.
In the meantime, Mattagne and his team will run a pop-up restaurant, called ‘Art Club’, on the Place Royale. It will have dishes on the menu that are close to the Japanese-American menu of his former restaurant YùMe, reports LaLibre.
The temporary restaurant does not want to offer customers ‘haute cuisine’, but rather a total experience with quality dishes. On Fridays and Saturdays, DJs will be working in the pop-up to provide “an atmospheric and festive setting.”
