One of the best meals we have had anywhere in the world.
We went for lunch, where the menu choices are two - more lunch or less lunch. You present your choice to the server, but rather than wait for what they might bring you, you watch the food being assembled.
Generally, I don't care about presentation - that's a level of food nerd that I just haven't reached. But the presentation at Naturell is breath-taking. I generally don't care to see my food being prepared, either, but watching the guys in the kitchen build beautiful little vegetable forests was surprisingly diverting, and I did like the was the food was laid out, both aesthetically and organizationally.
The food was magical. A lot of subtlety to the combinations of flavors, and the elevation of a number of foods I do not typically like. And like thirty different kinds of carrot.
Strangely, the service bordered on bad. As I have noted elsewhere here, Belgian service in general is quite different from American service. For one course, they made everybody else's dish and delivered it to them - I mean, we watched it, right? It was nearly a half hour before they made ours, and our server never said a word. "Hey, we can only make eight at a time, yours will be coming up." Something. Our server did absolutely nothing but take our order and then walk plates the ten feet from the kitchen, and didn't always do that well.
