I went to the east version of the cafe on a Sunday night to watch the Oscars with non-beer friends. This place did an okay job. I expected much worse and was pleasantly surprised to have good food and beer done pretty well. The prices were pretty high and the selection was not that great for Belgians, but we enjoyed ourselves and were treated well.

OK folks, this is NYC so donít complain about prices. AMAZING so let me repeat AMAZING selection and dedication to Belgian style brews here. Have been all OVER the NY-NJ-CT area and nobody has draft and bottled Belgian selection like BXL. Bartenders know these beers and can guide you to your preference before you buy a glass. You will find seasonal specials here you might never see elsewhere on tap. Get the country pate appetizer, if you are lucky enough to get a seat at the bar and talk beer with the bartender you can exponentially increase your appreciation for Belgian-style beers on tap and in general

Bartenders know their beers and they are all Belgian beers, so you know they are good. Staff is well versed in what beer goes well with what food. But drinking is the name of the game in this place.

Ambiance is medium size bar that leads to a sitting area, reminds me of a college bar (a little run down). Clientele college age. Busy on a Saturday night. Beer was served in proper glassware (Corsondonk Brown in tulip and Lindemans Framboise in Flute). Bartenders were fun and knowledgeable. Good selection of Belgian style beer.

Charming moderate sized European style restaurant and bar in midtown. Smallish but acceptable sized bar at lunchtime, it was not too crowded. What brought me here was the Ommegang cuvee house beer, and I am glad it did. There are a moderate amount of taps and bottles, with a pure Belgium theme.

Went here after Heartland (Times Square) and before HB Burger (which is in between the two, all three in a row) to hit three places right next to each other. The tap list and bottle list were not amazing, but they are the only place you can get the Ommegang Cuvee BXL that is made just for them apparently. Itís a decent enough beer, so possibly worth the stop if youíre in the area. My server was quite friendly and in spite of a modest lunch time crowd took time to chat with me about beers, Belgium, and the upcoming Belgium Comes To Cooperstown that he mournfully said he was unable to attend this year. Opted for the cheese croquettes as a light snack and they were quite good. The rest of the menu looked decent, albeit a touch on the pricey side, but youíre in Times Square, so itís sort of expected. Beer prices again, a little high, but due to location Iíd assume. Nice ambiance, clean and well lit, and a very open feel for a smaller place.
