Delicious beer. First thing you see: a bar with 12 gleaming chrome taps. Start there, or request the bound list of 120 or so bottles. Or there’s always a beer cocktail, maybe a Belgian tripel with bourbon and ginger liqueur.
A clandestine date. For getting-to-know-you purposes, head down the wine-lined staircase to a lounge outfitted in glass, brick and the occasional metal ox skull. Then grab a sofa and share one of eight mussels-and-frites options or a bone-in ribeye for two.
A late-night waffle. Next to the main bar: that would be a 12-seat waffle bar in the window, open late for your foie gras waffle pleasure.
Brunch on a Tuesday. Give it a few weeks, and they’ll be serving up brunch every morning, so you can start holding business meetings over lobster-and-egg skillets, mussel-stuffed waffles and maybe a beer spiked with Bloody Mary mix.
And you used to hate meetings.
