Though the menu is grounded in low-country cuisine from Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands, the real draw here is a selection of world-class Belgian and Belgian-style brews: more than 25 bottled brands and more than 11 drafts for a boisterous after-work crowd and some homesick Belgians. The dining room (like the crowd at the 25-foot bar) is of a masculine sort with brown leather banquettes, dark wooden tables, funky portraits of Belgian kings, and enameled ads for malt libations. Filling fare ranges from hearty stews to homey dishes like meat loaf and roast chicken while the inevitable moules frites are served in black enameled pots in two-pound portions. If the broth tastes underseasoned, nicely crisped and well-salted fries more than compensate for the shortfall.Deals on Meals
