Andre Guerrero’s bustling newcomer is dedicated to the foods—and more important, the drinks—of Belgium. The woodsy tavern is half bar, with a hefty Belgian beer list assembled by Ryan Sweeney (Verdugo Bar, the Surly Goat) and dishes that are brew friendly. Cheesy gou-gères act as buns for sliders that include sous-vide pork belly and fried oyster (our favorite). Water-zooi—a traditional stew—could be the creamy base of a chicken potpie. The cassoulet is a carnivore’s delight, with pork belly, duck confit, spicy sausage, and smoked slab bacon. » 1855 Industrial St., 213-622-8100 or
