The room feels a little bandbox, with its upholstered chairs and ribbon colors, but the service and food feel smart not stiff. Savory foods are modern and never less than yummy, but desserts can be skipped.
We started with the smoked salmon maki. As a little taste providing one crisp nugget for each of us 5, it was tantalizing. But if I had put in a full day's work and expected to tuck into a serious dinner, the €13.90 price (US $17) on this starter would have left me looking for the rest of the dish. The risotto with squid ink and tempura-fried calamari rings was toothsome and more substantial, sized up from a starter to a main course for a small supplemental cost. The sea bream was also very tasty -- the French can roast a fish -- at a practically trencherman size. Eliminating the veal juice from this dish to suit a pescatarian proved no problem whatsoever. The osso bucco was the least tantalizing of our main courses, but never less than satisfactory.
Warm rolls -- plain, herb and cheese -- held our attention between courses.
Poached melon and peaches in olive oil with sage were a light and modern finish, but overall, the desserts strayed more closely to the forgettable.
With a pinot noir correctly priced in the low €30s, and two courses, our group of 5 averaged about €30 per person when booked with a lafourchette.com discount of 30% on à la carte dining. We were well pleased to get food this good this well-priced, on a Sunday night to boot.
N'autre Monde cooks seasonally, with the menu changing every six weeks. Open every day; near the Grand Place.
