Over at the Daily News, Joe Sixpack just did a rundown of the new crop of Belgian taverns that are popping up around town. Although we have to disagree with Joe’s designation of Philly as Brussels, USA (said honor has to go to New York, with a staggering 22 Belgian restaurants), we have to say that Philly is making strides.
The recently opened Zot does a good job of Brussels-style bar food (mussels, steak frites, etc.). In June, the Main Line is getting Teresa’s Next Door, a bar with 12 drafts being dedicated to Belgian beers. Ditto for June, The Belgian Cafe will be opening in the Art Museum District courtesy of the Monk’s Cafe/Fergie’s crew. Old City is getting the Eulogy spin-off Beneluxx Tasting Room and the same team is opening a restaurant named Beneluxx in the former Broad Axe Tavern space in Blue Bell.
