About BRABO Restaurant
Named for the legendary Roman hero Silvius Brabo (whose monumental statue in Antwerp, Belgium commemorates his rescue of that city's populace from a terrifying giant), BRABO Restaurant is destined for fame. Our name honors the Flemish birthplace of Chef Wiedmaier's father and is above all a tribute to excellence.
BRABO by Robert Wiedmaier unites traditional Belgian cuisine with contemporary creativity for distinctive Old Town Alexandria fine dining. Adjacent to the boutique Lorien Hotel & Spa, this restaurant is joined by BRABO Tasting Room and the gourmet market, The Butcher's Block by RW, for a flavorful King Street trio that is garnering rave reviews
Combining Dining with Design
The award-winning talents of Chef Wiedmaier and designer Vicente Wolf harmonize for unforgettable dining at BRABO Restaurant. Classical and modern blend seamlessly together in everything from the atmosphere to the menus. The comfortable dining room's stylish details like a custom hammered copper bar reflect our historic Old Town location, while private dining on the hotel's outdoor terraces offers extraordinary Old Town views. For private parties of up to ten, you can also reserve the restaurant's Chef's Table, where the chef and wine director visit the table and tailor food and wine pairings just for you. Or take advantage of the season's warm weather with a table in our outdoor dining area.
Focusing on the Food
Enjoy any meal of the day at BRABO and the Tasting Room, from breakfast and lunch to an unforgettable dinner experience. Helping realize Chef Wiedmaier's vision, Chef de Cuisine Chris Watson entices diners with his well-honed skills and farm-to-table sensibility. Fresh seasonal ingredients, time-tested technique and originality create an alchemy of flavor in every dish.
Beverage Director Matthew Carroll presents an exceptional wine list to match the menus. The broad list highlights superb values and exclusive vintages from small producers, and includes a generous wines by the glass list for easy sampling. Our innovative cocktail list features signature creations, while Chef Wiedmaier's favorite Belgian brews, domestic gems and more star on the outstanding beer list.
