Well that was quick. Just two weeks after Dharma Cafe closed its doors, Catherine Duwez has quietly opened Cafe Brussels in the same space.

With a new coat of paint and a few changes on the walls — but not much else — Brussels opened on Tuesday with the same live jazz music lineup started by the previous owners.

Duwez is serving a casual slate of the same Belgian comfort foods she made popular at Cafe Montrose and Broken Spoke Café. The lunch menu includes croques and other Belgian sandwiches starting at $7, and a Belgian lunch buffet is offered for $15.

Familiar dinner recipes include a variety of Duwez's famous moules (as an appetizer or with frites) and other traditional Gallic meat and fish entrees, plus a dessert menu that features a handful of tempting sweet crepes.
