    Light beer haters paradise

    Had tix to a show at Town Hall next door - came upon the BXL Cafe by accident - seen the awning with the Duvel logo and thought SCORE !! Sampled several of the taps that I had not heard of and finished off with two Chimay Cinq Cents and then two more Delirum Tremens. Oh.. we ordered some apps too - The calamari was cooked perfectly, had a nice cheese plate and an order of delicious CRISPY fries. The bartender was a great guy and was very polite to all of the boobs asking for lite beer and non alcholic brews. We'll be back!!

    Go for the beer SKIP the food

    Most disappointing meal I've had in New York. Have to agree with a previous reviewer, fries were soggy and not very tasty -- my husband got the steak frites, I just tried his. I was in the mood for pasta so I got the Primavera. I like salt as much as the next guy, but this was the saltiest dish I have ever had. Service left a lot to be desired as well.

    What happened to the fries ?

    Both my husband and I loved the food (shared bitterballen, carbonnade for him, mussels for me), the beer selection and the atmosphere. My only disappointment were the fries. I was expecting great fries, as per previous reviewer and honored belgian tradition, but instead I got soggy fries with my mussels. Maybe it was an off night at the kitchen, but the rest of the food was very good, so they definitely should do something about those fries. Frankly, they were not worthy of a belgian place ! We'll be happy to go back and try again, since everything else was very nice.

    BXL is great

    I found out about BXL from my girlfriend’s friend who went to art school by it. The atmosphere is great. The service is wonderful, and the cuisine is good even by New York City standards (and that’s saying something). We have been there 2 times and I enjoyed the large screen T.V. that allowed me to see the NFL playoffs well, and she enjoyed the wine selection. They have a great Belgian beer selection as well. If you like Budweiser I don’t think they have it. We both liked the food atmosphere and people. Not too many tourists thank god. It’s a good place to go with friends or with a date.

    Just like "home"..

    Having lived in Brussels (= BXL) many many years before moving to NY, BXL Cafe is the place I go to whenever I crave great traditional Belgian food, beer and ambience. The fries at this place are amazing. No, sorry, they are AMAZING. If you like meatballs, you've got to try the Boulettes Sauce Tomate. Or assuming you are a fan of good rare beef, try the Steak Tartare, it's the best I had in NY. I'm no fan of mussels, but my friends always say that they're great. I think on Monday nights there is an all-you-can-eat mussels with one beer for $17! In terms of atmosphere, the place is also quite cool. A lot of regulars sit at the bar to enjoy good beer, a chat with the barman and often soccer on one of the TV screens. Every once in a while you'll hit a night when the place fills up with Belgians who are having a good night out (read: drinking and singing). Only downside is the price of the beers. I'd go there a lot more often if the beer was cheaper! Yves, anything you can do to fulfill that wish?
