...they have plenty of that and more at home. We're gonna drag them to Chinatown for cheap eats, so somewhere reasonably close to there would be a plus. Ideas?

Hands down a favorite Belgian eaterey and a great selection of Belgian beers. The drinks are old fashioned and strong - order a martini and it's chilled, stirred and come with a glass of water.

The food is great - several types of mussels - go curried - and pommes frites, stews, salads, with bar sized smaller order.

Bruxelles is located right off 8th Ave at 13th and Greenwich.

Mehanata sounds hysterical,

maybe not for quiet drinks, but hey. Thanks for the tip.

I know all the Belgian places. Done plenty of sample-testing at most, if not all, of them. What I'm looking for is someplace NON-BELGIAN to take these folks for drinks. Maybe I wasn't clear about that?

Anyway, drinks only, not dinner. We're already locked into Chinatown for eats.
