    It's where you'd least expect, but Hopleaf actually features a great wine list. It's mainly European, focusing on old world wines, but that's not to say there aren't any new world choices. Read more

    You may enter here as a novice, eyes glazing over with one glance at all the "brouwerijen" smattered through the encyclopedic menu. Take your time and experiment with something new. Read more

    Get the Belgian style mussels (they come with pomme frites!). If you see the table by the window open, grab and order from the bar. Better than waiting for 45 mins for a table.

    They're nixing regular fries and burgers and adding in none other than cheese head (that's pig's head) charcuterie. Or, try a duck and Gruyere crepe. Read more
