One sign that this place is serious about beer: Each brand it carries comes with its own unique glass. Another sign: The 16-page beer list includes more than 100 Belgian brews, from Delirium Tremens and Chimay to lesser-known offerings that rotate seasonally. Not sure what to order? You can sample the beers on tap before choosing or consult a beer sommelier. In warm weather, enjoy your Belgian on the large outdoor patio. The food here is also excellent. For a snack, we recommend the frites ($7), which come with three kinds of mayonnaise, or the gratin of Brussels sprouts ($7); the veggies have never tasted better.
