    First Monday of the Month

    Enjoy Belgian Fried Chicken Mondays with Kwak!

    It’s the First Monday of every month —Belgian Fried Chicken Night! You might not find fried chicken on many menus on Brussels, but you might wish that you did after tasting this! It’s not historically a staple of the Belgian culinary scene, but we thought we’d change that. The preparation changes from month to month. A past preparation (pictured) was:

    Sweet tea-marinated fried chicken thighs, cornbread stuffing waffle, Westmalle Dubbel-braised dandelion greens, pickled okra & honey-bourbon butter.

    We offer a specially-priced Kwak in its signature stirrup glass, (or a special pairing with a different Belgian beer, depending on kitchen’s suggestion) to the $18 BFC . There are of course plenty more beverages choices on our beer lists, wine lists, and more. Dinnertime starts at 5.  Portions are limited and BFC has become popular with those in the know, so maybe you’ll want to dine early?
