This Belgian bistro hosts a steady happy-hour crowd that starts arriving at 5 p.m. to imbibe exotic beers and ales ($6-$16) in the bar area as the pleasing aroma of frites and cheese fondues wafts in from the kitchen.

Outdoor seating includes tables facing the parking lot.

Recommended: mussels in various sauces and served with outstanding fries, beef stew, sandwiches, salads, and, to rekindle any memories of the 1964-65 New York World's Fair, Belgium waffles for dessert.
