Brugge on North, 40 W. North Ave., North Side
The bustling North Side is getting a taste of Belgium. This spring, Brugge on North @ Alphabet City will replace Casellula in the former Masonic Hall that now houses City of Asylum’s bookshop and event space. Husband-and-wife team Jesse and Amy Seager, who run Point Brugge Café in Point Breeze and Park Bruges in Highland Park, teamed up with City of Asylum CEO Henry Reese to create their third location. While the fare will be similar to its sister restaurants — think Belgian-inspired faves such as steak frites, Carbonnade Flamande and Crispy Duck Leg Confit — expect a cultural aspect to the new endeavor. Literary and musical events will make the space a community hub that just happens to offer gourmet eats.
