...when we could go to a restaurant again. And preferably in a new restaurant where we had not been before. Something nice, small, cozy & intimate...
And as you can see above I found the perfect address 😉
No, joking of course. What you see here is the interior of the original Antwerp stock exchange. This beautiful building was built in 1565 and was the very first stock exchange of this type in the world. It itself served as an example for the London Stock Exchange.

Of course, this building is no longer used as a stock exchange today. What's more, in recent years it was no longer publicly accessible and was in danger of decay.
But thanks to a private/government partnership, the entire building was renovated and is now used as an event hall.
By the way, the photo shows the preparation of some culinary event.
Ok, cozy and intimate it is not. But I would absolutely love to eat in such a majestic setting. By the way, I think my wife too... although you never know for sure with women of course 😉
