In an abundance of caution, we’ve made the difficult decision to suspend operations temporarily. The decision was made as a preventative measure in support of social distancing guidelines and the well-being of our team, community and guests. Visit our website for updates and status of our re-opening.

Satiate and savor in a stylish setting

Brabo Tasting Room, a 43-seat casual eatery, serves light fare and an assortment of fine wines and Belgian beers. Named for a hero from Belgian lore, the venue blends the rustic with the modern and the Continental with the colonial, in a 150-year-old building adjacent to Alexandria’s Kimpton Lorien Hotel & Spa.

Crafted by Executive Chef Sebastien Rondier, the innovative menu of sociable café fare is anchored by traditional Belgian cuisine and enhanced by the seasonal bounty of the region. Diners rave about Chef’s signature mussels, charcuterie, and artisanal cheese platters as well as pizzas and savory tarts wood-fired in the brick oven. Guests grab a seat at the handcrafted zinc bar, in the revamped dining room, or at our outdoor patio.

Menu magic

Narrowing down choices here is not an easy feat - we’re talking Chef’s signature mussels, charcuterie, artisanal cheese platters, soups, salads, and savory tarts (like duck, roasted mushroom, and pork belly), wood-fired in the brick oven.
