We'll arrive in Brussels in early evening tomorrow after a long travel day. I'm looking for a nice, cozy, pub type place where we can enjoy our first Belgian beer and have some typical food near our hotel (the Bedford Hotel). Prefer off the beaten path not-too-touristy if possible. Thanks!
For lunch head to Belga Queen it's very posh but it has a 2 course lunch with coffee for 18 EUR. Also one of my favorite pizzerias Mamma Roma is walking distance. Grab cheap drinks Café des Halles Saint-Géryone of my favorite places for people watching. If going on a weekend, check out the market at Sint-Katelijneplein / Place Sainte-Catherine, there's delicious seafood at La Mer du Nord / De Noordzee
