THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cuvee Notredame Restaurant Review

: On a tree-shaded corner in the Fairmount district, you’ll find this rare taste of Belgium. The bar, which is open until 2 a.m., has a Gallic feel (read smoky), but the copper-accented rear dining room is cozy. Owner Michel Notredame was one of the first to introduce what has grown into a trend-homey, Belgian-inspired dishes, starring mussels and crisp frites. Here, mussels come prepared fifteen different ways-cooked in beer, with cream, etc. You can also order such Belgian specialties as chicken Waterzooi, very rich sweetbreads cooked with chunks of lobster, and a mixed grill for two . At night, there’s a prix fixe menu ($59.95 for two); at midday, the $5.00 lunch is popular. You may find a decent Sancerre on the wine list, but we suggest ordering beer-CuvĂ©e Notredame features the largest selection of Belgian beers in the city. Of course, you’ll find Belgian waffles for dessert. Chef-owner Notredame put Belgian cooking on the map of Philadelphia awhile ago, and he still provides a warm welcome.
