My colleague and I were in Gent to collaborate with some academic colleagues. Because most of our evenings were to ourselves, and both of us are adventurous foodies, we decided to explore local favorite restaurants. We knew to stay away from the bars and bistros at the main squares, but were open to all possibilities. After noting that the House of Elliot was closed on Tuesdays and Wednesday, as are many local favorites, the recommendation of the hotel clerk (Hotel Gravensteen, Excellent!) was to try Allegro Moderato, a restaurant about a block from the hotel. What an amazing treat! We are both vegetarian and the wait staff took great care to ensure that our dishes were prepared to veggie friendly standards. The food was delightfully presented, each dish unique. Paired with our Clivus Pinot Grigio, from appetizer to dessert the food was excellent, well worth it. Our wait staff were so attentive, gregarious and knowledgeable,-a first rate crew. Wish I lived in Gent so that I could dine at this restaurant often.
