Actually, many restaurants change their menus to suit your winter / hibernation appetites... A table !
Tactic 1 : Play along Winter completely
Winter in Brussels can sometimes be a bit sad, very cold, but never that long. So use those few true winter weeks well and play the game completely!
«Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
Since we've no place to go
Let it snow let it snow let it snow! »
This is the time to forget about your scale and just go for the good stuff, like a traditional raclette or fondue, whether savoyarde (cheese) or bourguignonne (meat). L’R du temps and Au Petit Suisse are the only two real Swiss restaurants in Brussels and they are of course garanteed to fill your stomach with melted cheese.
Tactic 2 : Warm up
The wood that cracks in the chimney, the hands stuck to the radiator... Perhaps you want to feel in a restaurant like you're at home.

Si tu me donnes des noix de coco
Moi je te donne mes ananas »
Tactic 3 : Let the sunshine in
Are you more the type to be depressed when the weather is depressing? Don't let yourself down! Instead, put some sunshine in your dish so it shines in your heart!
« Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in »

Anf if nothing really can't console you, you can always decide to stay home and have Take Eat Easy deliver you numerous meals that won't have time to get cold!
