A small cafe that I'd read about on BA. Very clean, contemporary feel. Not at all what you'll get in the two other Belgian bars in town. Narrow space with a short bar seating maybe six. Roughly a dozen or so Belgian bottles and a mix of about six Belgian and micro taps. Their focus is clearly on minimal stocks of quality beer and cheese. No other food to be had here. Very much a niche bar that could only survive in an upscale area in a big city like Philly. Go there with deep pockets. Nice spot if you've got the time before dinner for a few drinks. Very efficient and friendly service. Nice Itlain meat/cheese combo. Can't precisely recall what type of meat and cheese I tried, but both tasted great. A tad too trendy and 20-something-yuppie for my taste, but still worth a visit and perhaps a repeat visit for me.

Little trendy-type bar/restaurant that had some nice beer options. Actual location had some outdoor seating and about 12 tables and some bar seats. Not a ton of room if all of the tables are occupied, but pretty similar to a lot of other downtown options. Beer list had about 8 taps and a pretty diverse bottle list. Wife got a 17oz RuinTen for $6. Needless to say, that seemed to be the go to option for a lot of the beer drinkers there that night. Staff seemed knowledgable about the beer offerings and made some nice suggestions. Unfortunately we did not get to try any food, but we were watching some plates get prepared and it looked pretty appetizing.

Came in to Tria for the good tap list and had a great time. When we first arrived it was quite busy (Saturday night) with a 30 minute wait for a table. We decided to just head up to the bar and get the beer we had come in to try, Daisy Cutter. All the seats were taken, but I was waited on immediately, nice. One of our group headed back to the door to put our name on the list for a table, and two seats opened up at the bar within minutes.

We really liked the atmosphere of the place. Nice lighting, good vibe, crowded but not overly loud. We were enjoying our beers, and before we knew it someone came up to let us know our table was ready. From the bar side our drinks and waters were taken over to our table, and we settled in to order food.

The service here was very attentive and friendly. The apps we ordered were all nicely done. We would make a point of returning here on a future visit. From the first greeting at the door, until we left, everything exceeded our expectations.
