MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

First you have to find it and it’s a wonder anyone does—down an alley off the main drag—but when you do you most certainly won’t want to leave. This beloved Georgetown standby is supremely handsome in that dark wood, red leather chair and wooden bench kind of way. Sink into a cozy booth upstairs before perusing the Belgian beer list, which can be dizzying due to its variety, not including the 50 selections on draft. But a cheat sheet divvies them up into categories like tart + funky, roasted or crisp for a handy twist. The food is a perfect complement to these sips. A platter of meat and cheese makes for a hearty start, while mains like the mussels marinière are a must. The Sovereign burger spread with a brown beer-onion jam is yet another sure strike.
