We were searching the neighborhood for a restaurant and stumbled upon BXL. We thought it was a normal bar, but pleasantly surprised to see tables and a restaurant atmosphere in the back. The mussels and frites were great, and the house beer is EXCELLENT. I'm not a beer drinker, and I will be back for a glass real soon! The service was friendly, and the manager(?) even gave a big thanks on the way out- makes me feel like they appreciate our business. Note- ask for extra bread to soak up the juice at the bottom of the mussel pot!

Friends and I went to this restaurant Sunday night for "all you can eat" mussels. We had white wine and garlic and Thai style coconut milk etc. The presentation in a huge covered pot was really wonderful: the lid becomes the "shell" dish and when filled was taken away frequently. The mussels themselves were very tender and cooked to perfection. Both varieties that we had were very well seasoned and delicious. Got 2lbs of mussels, excellent beer and frites for $20!!! plus a second helping of mussels. Service was friendly and very efficient.
