I love this place. Have been trying to go back for a year. The food is bomb, but I am a sucker for well-made Italian offerings like their ravioli with tiny tomatoes and whole shallots. Mussels are, as the last rater said, really great. Whole place has a ’come for a nice dinner’ vibe, so dress accordingly - even the bar area is swank. They claim to have that one beer that cannot be re-sold every now and again... do with that what you will. The Belgian offerings, like Back Abbey, are exhaistive and not too unusual but seemingly very well-kept. The odd Mikkeller finds its way in as well.

This place has been open nearly a year, its walking distance to us and we just found it yesterday. Amazing Belgian beer bar; 4 taps for Christmas seasonal beers and a very robust bottle list. My wife and I each had 2 beers and tried the appetizer of muscles which were the best I’ve ever had. The bartender was Rene’ and was a totally classy and fun guy. We had a great experience and will certainly return.
