Based on https://www.lemoniteur.be/documentation/horeca-135.html it 
seems that a brasserie is a café that serves simple food, and hence the 
manager doesn't need to be a professional cook:
> _Café_
> Vous ne devez pas avoir un accès à la profession Restaurateurs et 
> Traiteurs-organisateurs de banquets à condition de n'offrir que de la 
> petite restauration (potages, croques et toutes sortes de toasts, 
> croquettes, à l’exception de croquettes de pommes de terre, 
> vol-au-vent, boudins noirs et boudins blancs, brochettes grilles, 
> pains fourrés, hamburgers, hot-dogs, pittas et croissants, pâtes, 
> pizzas, quiches ou autres tartes sales, salades froides, assiettes 
> anglaises, œufs prépares, desserts (notamment des crêpes, des glaces, 
> des gaufres, des gâteaux, des brioches, des yaourts et des 
> milk-shakes). Ces repas légers ne peuvent être servis qu’avec du pain.
This category applies too to the "restaurants" that serve only pizzas 
(pizzerias), pitas, hamburgers... except french fries ("à l’exception de 
croquettes de pommes de terre").

Currently, amenity=pub food=yes seems to be the most used.
