The diners at La Manufacture are as chic as the accessories that the luxury leather-goods company Delvaux used to make here, when it was still a factory. The restaurant interior follows the old industrial theme, with long pipes, iron columns, and a handsome staircase taking you up to the second level. Dishes such as a "cappuccino" of carrots with ginger foam for a starter, veal loin with passion-fruit juice and peanut butter to follow, and for the adventurous perhaps braised piglet cheeks with kriek beer and rosemary are all dishes in tune with the current taste for contemporary European cooking. There's a terrace for summer dining, and year-round a contented buzz to the whole place.
