Celebrating Belgian Food

Not to be forgotten in the midst of Bastille Day menus and festivities by French restaurants, Belgian eateries in Washington D.C. have launched their own mid-July promotion. It all leads up to Belgium’s National Day on July 21. New York also held a Belgian Restaurant Week last year and several other cities boast destinations for this distinctive European cuisine.
