An authentic Belgian beer cafe, the original of three BXLs in the city. It is long and narrow with a well-worn bar top. Look at the blackboard behind the bar (by the TV screen) for current guest beers in addition to the printed beer menu. The Cuvee BXL house beer is brewed by Ommegang in upstate New York. (11/2015)
