SquareMeal Review of
Within easy reach of its sibling Belgo Centraal, this junior branch of the mussel-bound mini-chain has all the necessary credentials. Belgians take their beers seriously, and aficionados can sip
their way through Blanche de Bruxelles, Slag Pils, Pauwel Kwak, Delirium Tremens and Westmalle Trippel (weighing in at a brain-jangling 9.5% abv). If that sounds too heavy, try banana- or
