For 25 years, culinary wonder twins Stefan and Kristof Boxy have been redefining food in Belgium with their Michelin-starred restaurants, catering services, and cookbooks. One of their latest ventures makes it easier to sample their delectable fare, provided that you're in Ghent.  Boxy Fine Foods , located in an elegant 19th-century building in the old Flemish city, features takeout selections—seasonal local specialties, gourmet foods, and signature prepared meals—that offer a contemporary take on the best of Belgian traditions. The space, designed in collaboration with Frederic Hooft , reflects the brothers' palate—sumptuous yet simple. Photographs by Frederik Vercruysse  and Boxy Fine Foods.

Above: A witty foil to the crystal chandeliers, hanging gardens at the entrance soften the stark white space. Above: Though the Boxy brothers are known for their vegetarian fare, they also offer an impressive selection of charcuterie.

Above: Minus the characteristic gilded frame, a still life harkens to a more opulent age while complementing the clean lines.  N.B.
