A menu that hits the mark without having to draw.
Valérie has always had the utmost respect for good food. As a child, her parents took her on gastronomy tours to introduce her to the pleasures of the culinary arts. So, when life tapped her on the shoulder, Valérie abandoned the media and film programming to go back to her first love: food.
Her project? A friendly place with simple and delicious dishes that would set the tone: Tontons.
There are no chequered placemats or lace curtains at Tontons. But, the salamis hanging above the counter and the fresh round loaf of bread in the display immediately let you what you’ll find here: the affability of Jean Lefebvre, the authenticity of Francis Blanche, a bolognese sauce as solid as Blier and, on the large verdigris board, a menu straighter than a Ventura right.
I applied for subsidies from a number of different organisations. Atrium.Brussels really worked with me. The members are accessible and very knowledgeable. They had the right answers and their ability to handle all of the procedures and follow-up on my file immediately made things much clearer!
