Brooklyn NY 11249
Smart Belgian brasserie, Belgian beers are featured.
Directions - L train to Bedford Avenue, take the Bedford Avenue exit (at the rear of trains coming from Manhattan), walk south on Bedford Avenue to the corner of Grand Street. Alternatively, J / M / Z train to Marcy Avenue, take the Havemeyer Street (west) exit, head north on Havemeyer Street, turn left on Grand Street, continue walking westwards for three blocks. Note, from the latter station, you will pass Banter (q.v.).
Situated in a former bank building from many years ago (the bank in question being infamous by going bust and leaving investors penniless), this smart Belgian bistro carries beers exclusively from that country. There isn't a huge or rare selection, but there are plenty of old favourites on offer. The horseshoe-shaped, marble-topped bar counter is impressive. Service can be slow if a number of people are ordering cocktails at busy times, but that's no fault of the bar staff. It has a very authentic Belgian atmosphere, even down to the background music. 'Witlof' is Flemish for chicory. (11/2015)
