BRABO Tasting Room: Modern, Belgian-Inspired Cuisine in Alexandria

November 19, 2014 5:02 pm

The dining room at BRABO Tasting Room feels simultaneously modern and historic, with its bright, airy space, exposed brick, and custom zinc bar. At this Alexandria restaurant, you can always expect to take a culinary journey, and that's just what Chef Wiedmaier is after.

You might start your meal with locally sourced roasted mushrooms, served with pancetta, taleggio, and arugula, or perhaps you'll order a pot of mussels direct from Prince Edward Island and simmered in a classic broth of white wine, garlic, and shallots. As an entree, try the roast beef au jus with pepper jack cheese and caramelized onions, or dig into a hearty Nicoise salad topped with sushi grade tuna, a quail egg, French beans, olives, and fingerling potatoes.

Whatever sounds good to you, just settle yourself into one of the restaurant’s comfy booths and let your taste buds do the rest.
