July 19 was the Grand Opening night of Le Quartier, a new casual fine dining restaurant on the bustling Gunawarman. Serving up traditional as well as novel French/Belgian dishes, Le Quartier’s clean, comfortable, and large space is suitable for a date, get-togethers, and family gatherings. If you are passing by Gunawarman, look out for a blue French/European building, not too distant from Loobie–you won’t miss it.
Owner, chef, and restaurateur Chris Janssens is Belgian, so the menu is a sampling of a variety of Belgian specialties such as Moules-frites, some charcuterie, and foie gras. One thing my friends and I appreciate is the decent portion sizes. Oftentimes French and/or fine food in general are infamous for its itsy bitsy size, but not this one. The food, overall, feels well-made, clean, and genuine. Nothing was excessively seasoned (you know how I feel about overkill saltiness). Spending wise, you’re looking in the range of 200-500K per person. You can check out their menu before making your visit here. Enjoy!
