Formerly a Congolese warehouse, this lively local favorite is a great place to grab a casual meal. The decor is standard Flanders: worn black-and-white floor tiles, paper-menu place mats on wood tables, tatterdemalion maps on the walls, and a nicotine-stained ceiling suggesting a long lineage of dining and debating intelligentsia that continues today. The fare is basic but tasty: juicy steaks are served with a choice of six sauces (mushroom, mustard, Roquefort, béarnaise, peppercorn, and Provençal) aside fresh leafy salads, piping-hot soups, and small pots of wine. Daring diners might want to sample the horse steak, something of a cult favorite in Belgium.

Open daily 7:30 pm to 1 am.
