Wasbar, Antwerp, Belgium.

Today Eater takes a first-ever look at Belgium to focus on eleven newish restaurants and three bars that have been garnering some serious buzz. Just as with the Eater Switzerland heatmap, this map takes a look at what's hot across the entirety of that small but noble country. For the list, Eater has asked Le Gourmand Belge blogger and Culinary Travel Magazine editor Kristof Verheyden for his picks.

Belgium certainly does not disappoint when it comes to interesting restaurant concepts. Chief among these would be the slick café that comes equipped with washing machines that is so popular it has locations in both Ghent and Antwerp (Wasbar). Bruges is home to a meatball shop that serves a little something called "glory balls" (Balls & Glory). And then, of course, there's the fine dining, which includes a new restaurant from an acolyte of Hof van Cleve chef Peter Goossens (Restaurant Vrijmoed) and an "exceptional" new location for a two-Michelin-starred destination (L'Air du Temps). Here now, the Eater Heatmap to Belgium, a chronicle of the country's restaurants of the moment.
