    Belga is always such a delightful experience and last night was no exception. Terrific food, service and a convivial atmosphere make this a favorite.

    As it was a beautiful day in DC even with a reservation Belga was packed! We were offered the alternative option of The Betsy. This is Belga's Alley outdoor upstairs off shoot. You get the same amazing food in a chicken centric ( chicken puns galore) locale. My group actually preferred this as it was much quieter than the main restaurant and not on the busy sidewalk of the barracks row and a more intimate space (less tables). If you can get over the kitschy chicken puns decor if offered this option on your visit I would recommend this option over the main restaurant.

    Best muscles in DC. They’re always fat and plump and perfectly seasoned. Service is outstanding.
