Gramm is one of the more interesting new arrivals on the Brussels dining scene, an inventive and modern restaurant serving contemporary Breton cooking with a Japanese twist care of Chef Erwan Kenzo Nakata, who is half French, half Japanese, his cooking style reflecting his parentage. They offer a very reasonable tasting menu of 6 courses for €38 if you want to sample the best the kitchen has to offer. The space is stylish in a minimalist sort of way, simple, delicate, a white room, with tables lining each side and a window full of white neon. The focus here is very much what’s on your plate and the cooking is well executed and prettily presented: dishes like aubergine brulee, mackerel with celery confit and beef teriyaki with ginger mayonnaise. There’s a good range of wines, beers (of course) and sakes available though drink mark ups are on the high side. All in all this is one of the more original drinking and dining experiences you’ll have in the city.
