Belgian cuisine coming to Kansas
A Belgian couple who has operated restaurants in France is relocating to Wichita, fulfilling a long-time desire to move to the U.S. and run a restaurant there, writes the Wichita Business Journal’s John Stearns. Florence and Didier Fraikin will open a restaurant offering French and Belgian cuisine - aptly called Au Paris-Bruxelles. The couple has sold their Le Vieux Bruxelles restaurant (pictured) in Clémont, France, to move to Wichita with their daughter. Florence Fraikin graduated in cooking arts from the Citadelle School in Namur and as a skilled chef from the Institut Technique for Hostelry and Catering in Libramont. The couple has operated restaurants throughout France. Their Wichita restaurant will offer French and Belgian specialities like Ostend fish soup, a two-meat chef’s terrine, salade niçoise, Flemish beef stew and waterzooi.
