Belgium is the bold-faced theme of this casual yet stylish hot spot of chef Robert Wiedmaier, a cavernous brasserie located in Washington, DC. Modeled on a vintage Brussels train station with old railway clocks overhead, and featuring a large exhibition kitchen and oversized bar, Brasserie Beck in Washington, DC transports diners to a wonderland of hearty Flemish cuisine. Here you will find a tempting array of mussel preparations such as Classic White Wine to Spicy Red Thai Curry; Beef Carbonade [Beef Stew braised with Kasteel Bruin beer;] and a Cassoulet of slow-braised Lamb, Garlic Sausage, Duck Confit Pork Belly, White Beans and Root Vegetables; along with extensive charcuterie and shellfish plates, and the area’s most comprehensive selection of Belgian beers – including some brewed exclusively for chef Wiedmaier. Hailed by Esquire as one of the “Best New Restaurants in America” when it opened in 2007, it remains a favorite to this day.
