Belgian fries

..and MORE

The final bill, including tax and tip, for the meal will be divided equally among the diners. You will be responsible for the cost of any drinks and individual desserts that you order. The estimated cost per diner is $25-40. Cash only. Please bring small bills.

    Markt’s Belgian cuisine may merit a 7 out of 10 for authenticity, but the service was 100% Manhattan. Our party was squeezed around a table for 6 and everything from the hard surfaces, loud music, dimmed lights and especially the staff who tried to take away our food-laden plates while we were eating was geared towards table-turning. The Belgian endive salad offered two lonely leaves of endive. If it’s out of season, perhaps it should be off the menu. We couldn’t resist the twice-fried Belgian frites and gobbled them up long before attacking the mussels served in large pots. The carbonades flamandes lacked its traditional vinegary bite while the creamy broth of the waterzooi was a surprise hit. Blanched julienned carrots, onions and leeks are added just before serving to bring some crispness to the rich Flemish chicken stew. Thanks to Inge for bringing the real Belgian charm and teaching us how to use an empty shell to eat mussels. May this be a meal that none of us will forget.
