Rue des Boucher in Brussels

In the close vicinity of the Grand Place is located the popular pedestrian Street of Butchers. In French, it sounds like Rue de Boucher. There are dozens of restaurants on all levels. Many restaurants specialize in Belgian cuisine, but you can try dishes from all over the world.

The Rue de Boucher is quite long, but the main section where the maximal concentration of restaurants begins at the Royal galleries of Saint Hubert and stretches for several hundred meters to the north. Many restaurants have outrigger racks where seafood and fish are laid out on ice.

In the Middle of the Century, this street was home to butchers who sold goat and sheep meat. Today, the street has preserved the building of the 18th century. The old houses were destroyed in 1685, during the storming of Brussels by the French troops of Louis XIV.
