A spot of bad luck put a damper on a special event at La Chronique last week. Just as chefs Marc De Canck and Olivier de Montigny were about to kick off a multi-course winter truffle menu for a room full of customers, a leak forced the restaurant to halt service and evacuate.
De Montigny says today that it could have been much worse and that he expects to re-open on Wednesday or Thursday. La Chronique will throw another truffle party soon to make up for the debacle and has some surprises in store on the occasion of the restaurant's 20th anniversary.
A similar incident took place at Bouillon Bilk last month.
