La Bicyclette’s adventure in the restaurant business began in 1974 when they opened their first restaurant, La Boheme, in the location where La Bicyclette is today. They served only one prix fixe dish per night, posting a calendar of their monthly menu in the window. The food was simple and fresh, reflecting the family meals we grew up with as children in the countryside of Belgium. To their surprise and delight, there was a line out the door every night! Although they had never intended to become restaurateurs, they discovered a true joy in sharing their culture where great food and wine went hand-in-hand with good conversation and friends.
Today, La Bicyclette features European Country Cuisine, hand-crafted using local ingredients and old world artistry. Their food is still simple and spontaneous, blending flavors and cooking techniques in a way that is rooted in tradition yet creative. The menu is updated weekly, allowing them to make use of the freshest locally sourced ingredients. The kitchen is tiny, with all food prepared on a six burner stove and in our wood-fired oven.
