A pearl in San Francisco; all Belgium, all the time. Walk quickly through the small, prissy upstairs restaurant and head for the basement. I sat at the bar and was confronted with the slab notebook that is the bottle list, with a tap list tucked into the front cover. The night I visited the taps were a heavy on blonde ales and lighter fare, but not exclusively. I had a Lucifer pale ale and the followed up with a N'Ice Chouffe. Both were served quickly and in the right glasses, with a smile and some conversation from Mike the bartender. Cellar-like ambiance, dark and primarily lit by candles, with a bit of basement skank in the air for authenticity. When visiting SF, this is without question worth the effort to locate. Bring your Belgian-beer attitude; otherwise, prepare for disappointment. I found the bottle list to be rather pricey, but the taps were reasonable.

Test of strength: after drinking, walk up Taylor Street.

Came here midweek with an out-of-town guest. We were able to get a seat at the bar. I had beer while my guest had wine and they accommodated both of us. Belgian-heavy, obviously, with local and international breweries well represented. Prices were on par for the area, service was beyond excellent, and they accommodated my request to grill, not fry, the portabella.

This bar is awesome. We walk in and I was sure that we walked into an open, run down kitchen with a few tables: empty. Then I saw the stairs welcoming us down to where the actual, what you think of when you think, "Belgian ba"r. Spiraling staircase down to a dimly lit, low ceilinged, brick and wooden beamed Belgian dreamland. Then you're offered the beer list. As heavy as a baby and just as previous.
