The place was too packed to fit inside. Sitting in the cold courtyard, we waited to be served. Eventually I went to the bar. ""We can't run a tab outside,"" the barmaid said. ""If you order here, we'll bring it to you."" I ordered, carried two beers outside, and waited for our food. And waited... eventually we moved to a table inside. Once inside, we thought a waitress might stop by. Think again. Finally catching some poor busboy who had to deliver into the cold, we waylaid him and hijacked someone else's food. Less crowded, it would be a nice atmosphere as long as you're prepared for Do It Yourself.
BTW, only beer here, mostly Belgian. No hard liquor. The mussels are good but messy. No bread to soak up the butter... and try getting extra napkins. Who're you gonna ask? --Drink Club is a roving band of NYC drinkers
Pros: Belgian Beer, Friendly patrons
Cons: Service?, What service?
