Ceci n’est pas le Sea Grill

Two Michelin star chef Yves Mattagne settles into the kitchens of the previous Museum Brasserie. 

Before moving back to la Villa Lorraine, Yves Mattagne and the Litvine family opened an ephemeral restaurant Art Club in early March, located in the Royal Museums of Fine Arts, on the Place Royale.

No star cuisine is proposed here, Art Club offers a different concept: a world menu inspired by the chef’s many journeys and focussed on sharing. A creative cuisine where the dishes are presented like tapas, to share.

From the pork bao with hoisin sauce, to the duck and foie gras dumplings and the hamachi with Saké fusion, Yves Mattagne’s inspiration comes largely from his experiences in Asia. The chef also reworks some of his classics from the Sea Grill, such as the sweetbread mini burgers with lobster bearnaise or his red tuna américain which is prepared at the table. The service is led by Fabrice D’Hulster, his loyal restaurant director for more than 10 years, and reinforced by a part of La Villa Lorraine, and runs smoothly and relaxed in a convivial and musical atmosphere.

Yves Mattagne discovers his vocation during holidays he spent at the Belgian coast, in the hotel restaurant ran by his aunt. It is during that period that his passion for seafood will born. After his military service, Yves Mattagne integrates the brigade of the Hilton International Hotel Brussels, before going, three years later, to the Hilton International Gatwick in London, where he became chef, for two years.

With this international experience, Yves Mattagne returns to his native country, where he becomes assistant to Michel Beyls, chef of l’Orangerie. He then did an internship in restaurant Le Divellec in Paris for several months with the aim of training for the future opening of the Sea Grill, Restaurant of the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel Brussels. Exactly one year after taking the lead, Yves Mattagne was awarded his first star in the Michelin Guide (1991). He got a second one in 1997.

Yves Mattagne is a man with passion, empathy, talent and conviction. From managing his establishments to defending the sector, as well as being committed to several charities, Yves Mattagne is generous, invested and charismatic.

After spending 30 years in the kitchens of the Sea Grill, a page turns, and a new adventure begins for the chef whose experience, talent and creativity has no longer to be proven. From this summer, Yves Mattagne and his team will join La Villa Lorraine after a complete renovation.
