Does your mouth starts to water at the thought of a delicious piece of smoked meat, grilled fish or crispy seasonal vegetables accompanied by a refreshing drink? Then VIAGE has some great news for you: from October 2019 you can enjoy various grilled culinary delights all year long at VIAGE Grill, our renewed restaurant in Brussels.
Days Without Meat [Dagen Zonder Vlees] is a great campaign that makes you think about the impact of our eating habits on the environment. Not by waving a patronising finger, but by showing you that you can also create exciting taste bombs on your plate without meat or fish. In a few days the Days without Meat campaign will come to an end, but not at the Grand Casino Brussels Viage. Come to the table!
It is not great news: we Belgians are in the top five countries with the largest ecological footprint.
Often we underestimate the impact of our eating habits. Over-consumption of animal foods is therefore also a major cause of global warming. But what can we do about it? Consider what we put on our plates and eating no meat or fish on a few days a week would be a big step forward.
Take the challenge!
Time to experiment in your kitchen with the most delicious veggie dishes. On the Days Without Meat website you can certainly find fun ideas. But occasionally you want to sit down at the table without having to cook first. Then you are at the right place at restaurant Saffron in the heart of Grand Casino Brussels Viage. How about a delicious veggie burger, with freshly picked organic products from the Brussels early market?
Or do you fancy Asian cuisine? Then you can choose the fabulous noodles with vegetables. Whatever you choose: you get the atmosphere and friendliness for free. Top marks! Restaurant Saffron is also open seven days a week, until late into the night!
Over 100,000 Belgians take part in Days Without Meat and that is fantastic. Together they ensure that our ecological footprint reduces. Not only by eating less meat and fish. By eating more seasonal vegetables and by deal with leftovers creatively they show us that eating sustainably is simply tastier, more creative and healthier.
An evening out with friends? Then Brussels is the place to be. Have a pint at the bar with friends. Relax over a nice dinner with a sweetheart or mate. Dive into the nightlife complete with beat and electro. Move over, New York!
Hundreds of different beers
Drink in the spirit of Brussels in its pubs and bars. Where the owner has been running the business since forever and time has stood still. Where you can hear the Brussels dialect and the decibels rise noticeably as the evening wears on. Wander around the picturesque streets of the capital, discover some real gems and quench your thirst now and then with one of the hundreds of tasty beers.
Tip: in 2016 UNESCO recognised the Belgian beer culture as World Heritage.
Tuck into a good meal
Prefer a gastronomic meal to hanging around at the bar? Reserve a table at one of the many restaurants. Brussels offers you a culinary tour of the whole world. Challenge your taste buds with spicy Indian dishes, eat Ethiopian with your hands or juggle with chopsticks in an Asian restaurant. And if you’re peckish late at night, stop for a quick portion of Belgian fries and mayonnaise.
Dance, dance, dance
Dance to the beat of international DJs in Brussels’ clubs and discos. See global stars perform live. Brussels rocks and so will you. It’s party time wherever you go.
Bar, restaurant and club in one
Don’t feel like trekking all over the city? Experience it all at Viage. Tuck into Italian, Asian and typical Belgian dishes at our Saffron Restaurant. Drink to a great evening with your friends at our Cinna-Bar. And be sure to try some of our flavourful Brussels beers: blonde Zinnebir, rich Brusseleir, tripel Jambe-de-Bois and the pale ale Taras Boulba.
At Viage you’ll enjoy live performances every last Friday of the month. On 31 March The Covrettes will get you up and dancing to their very own modern retro versions of the world’s greatest hits. See you then!
