I'll dig up my notes when I get home for some excellent places to indulge in food.
For starters.... If you want an AMAZING dining experience check out Le Pre Catelan which is right in town, but in an amazing park. Hands down one of the most incredible gastronomy experiences you will ever enjoy. Another link for Lenotre with Pre Catelan
Oh yeah, and be prepared to drop some bills for dinner...

Like Cheese?
Alleosse will absolutley friggin knock your socks off. If you are into raw milk stuff, you'll be in heaven.

As far as Brussels goes, the TGV & Eurostar leave from Gare Du Nord a few times daily. The ride takes about 90 minutes

I was in Paris last year and found Académie De La Bière to be quite enjoyable. Thay had a large selection of Belgian and other international beers along with some good Biere de Garde as well. You also might want to check out La Gueuze which lived up to it's name by having several Lambic beers available.

There is also a Brewpub chain in Paris with a few locations, the original being The Frog & Rosbif (others include The Frog & British Library, The Frog & Princess and The Frog at Bercy Village). The Frog & Rosbif was a raucus place with a younger crowd and more of a British Style Pub decor.

It is just a short train ride to Brussels (approx. 1.5 hrs) and would make a very nice day trip.

In London, my favorite pub is The Black Friar (Be sure to go to the back room which is absolutely amazing to look at). And of course you have to head over to Ye Old Cheshire Cheese if for nothing but the history.

A lot less than there used to be. Mainly Eastern European and Asian now.
The English are moving out.

I'm in Belgium right now and the € is killing me. We're on our way to Antwerp.

If you make it to Brussels, go to la Morte Subite or la Becausse to feel like a local. Go to café Delyrium for the 2004+ beers.

I regret missing Cantillon, I may not make it back this trip. Look into that, if Brussels is in the cards.

Too early to leave Bruge. I'm looking up the bars in Antwerp. This has been the best free WiFi since I've been here. Doing my research while SWMBO sleeps in.
