This Belgian bistro is known for its moules pots, but diners also return for the rich fondue. Served as an appetizer ($18), it’s a mix of farmhouse ale, gouda and gruyère. It also comes with apples, grapes and a baguette for dipping. Aside from the fondue being hot and delicious, the restaurant isn’t stingy on the portion either—it’s big enough to share!
