No longer exclusive to the West Village scene, Belgian food and its signature triple-fermented beer have arrived in Lenox Hill. This narrow, miniscule space features a polished wooden bar up front; a handful of tables are set against exposed-brick walls at the back, for a semi-rustic feel. Suds savorers might blanch at only ten options on draught, but B. Café offers an impressive selection of bottled brews, as well as obscure spirits, like genever, as liquid counterpoint to the hearty, stick-to-your-ribs Belgian fare. Options run from the requisite moules frites prepared five ways to Hoegaarden and garlic to red curry and coconut to richer fare, like a sticky and dense beef stew christened "Carbonnades Flamandes" for its dark-beer braise. And B. Café may have one of the best burgers uptown. Oozing with juice, the oversized patty features a secret blend of spices, a thick slice of Gruyère, and a heap of sautéed mushrooms, all sandwiched in a crusty, grill-toasted bun.

Outdoor Seating

An intimate garden is open during the warmer months.
