Missed something on the blog in recent weeks? Here’s a look back at the highlights of November – including Five Ways to Enjoy Brussels this Autumn, a new fabulous Italian restaurant – and the winners of our “Brussels Feeling” Photo Competition.

Let’s start with food: Although it’s now too cold on most days to sit outside, a visit to Osteria Bolognese round the corner from Place St. Boniface is a good idea whatever the weather. Make sure to book a table, as it can get very crowded especially in the evenings. The pasta there is great, but don’t miss out on their delicious appetizers, either!

For drinks, may we direct your attention to a new brewery in town: The Brussels Beer Project – known, for example, for their widely lauded Delta Beer – has opened a new brewing site in Brussels. Read more about it in this post.

Not sure how to make the most of the days before Winter truly kicks in and the Christmas markets open their doors (and kegs)?

Here are some ideas on how to spend some great time in and around the city right now: Five Ways to Enjoy Brussels This Autumn.

A couple of weeks ago we teamed up with the friendly people of Spotahome to host a little competition: We asked you for pictures that best express your personal “Brussels Feeling” (see above for an example of ours).

We got some great entries – and we have found a winner:

Last but not least, we had a quartet of new Belgian Beers on the blog: Hapkin, the Axeman Beer; Liefmans Goudenband, the King’s Beer; St Feuillien, a great Abbey Beer; and Abbaye des Rocs Blonde.

Keep on tasting Brussels!
