Meet the Chef:
A master of traditional Belgian cuisine with a flair for provocative dishes, Bart Vandaele is a contestant on season 10 of Bravo’s “Top Chef.” “I’ve become known as ‘the Belgian guy’ for putting Belgian food on the map in D.C.,” he says.
The Belgian-born chef opened his first restaurant in 2004, the wildly successful Belga Cafe, in 2015 he expanded his businesses with the opening of the summer garden, rooftop bar, The Betsy.
His career began at the “Ter Groene Poorte”, the Culinary Institute for Restaurant and Hotel Management in Brugge. He then worked for renowned Belgian restaurants, including Piet Huysentruyt and Restaurant Scholteshof, served under respected Chef Roger Souvereyns, and served as executive chef for the European Union’s head diplomat to the U.S. and later the Dutch Embassy.

If you are coming with friends, please let us know so that we can seat you together at the same table. We regroup guests at tables of 6 or 8 unless you wish a separate table.
The restaurant is very close to the Eastern Market Metro station. Street parking is available, on Monday night it should not be a problem to find it.
