If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some fare from Belgium with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Belgian cuisine and drinks at Brasserie Belge in Sarasota.

Brasserie Belge's Belgian-born chef Karl Deneubourg crafts a menu brimming with contemporary takes on classic Belgian cuisine, adorning dishware with salads, seafood spreads, and hearty entrees within a sleek, casual setting. Choose from an impressive lineup of steamed mussels, such as the selection that fuses them together with asparagus, fresh basil, cream, white wine, and truffle oil ($24) or the option that souses them in Leffe beer and cream ($22), all served with Belgian frites. A 14-ounce new york strip steak ($24), complemented by worldly drizzles of homemade béarnaise sauce (additional $3), sates cravings for city-dwelling cattle, and the white asparagus ($12)—sautéed with butter and a superhero-style consortium of veggies—appeases palates with an entourage of mashed carrots and potatoes. Round out nosh fests with a Belgian chocolate lava cake ($6), oozing with a molten center sweeter than Mount Vesuvius after one of Willy Wonka’s ritualistic offerings.

With its crisp white tablecloths, deep-red walls, and minimalist modern furnishings, Brasserie Belge makes an ideal setting for a contemporary dinner with friends or a romantic spoon-on-nose balancing contest with a date.

Brasserie Belge

By the time he was 20, Christian Zebier was serving as maître d'hôtel for a prestigious restaurant in Belgium. After a five-year stint teaching primary school, he realized that his heart lay in hospitality, and that children have terrible table manners. The first business Zebier began, Air du Temps, deployed an elite staff to serve such distinguished parties as the Belgian royal family.

Zebier stuffed his fine-tuned sense of hospitality into a suitcase and brought it to the United States, where he opened Brasserie Belge. He felt that Sarasota's open-minded, well-traveled residents could appreciate the traditional ambiance of a brasserie. The restaurant's attentive staff serves a menu of Belgian cuisine, such as Prince Edward Island mussels delivered fresh every morning and served with one of 12 styles of belgian fries. On the leather couches of the piano lounge, patrons enjoy Belgian beers, specialty martinis, and small plates.

Outstanding restaurant, wonderful atmosphere, great service! The presentation of the food, as well as the flavor, was terrific. It was a quiet evening when we were there, but it did not diminish our experience.
