Would give it a few more points for being such a cool place near Timeís Square. As you might have guessed from the name, heavy on the Belgians. Place can get crowded with a narrow shoot to get from front bar to back dining area. Bartenders might be a little gruff even for NT standards but not sure how much of that come from working so close to the heart of darkness. Solid pick if youíre pressed for time and stuck in Timeís Square.

Went here after a show for a few beers as the crowds dispersed. Small cafe place a peice of Europe half a block from times square. With all the maps of nyc available to tourist, i am glad some one had the briliance to include one of brussels. Service was friendly and prompt. Only belgians available here, which is no problem with me. Beer was served in correct, clean glassware. Did look at a menu but not order. 6 versions of mussels and fries, should have come here for dinner instead of heartland. Prices were typical for the city. Overall an enjoyable expirence and will surely return in the future.

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.
