THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Resto Restaurant Review

: New York’s Belgian craze of the late ’90s may be long since passed, and options for low country fare limited, but there’s new hope at Resto. The kitchen takes plenty of liberties with Belgian cuisine, but consider them necessary adaptations. What would otherwise be a standard deviled egg is served atop “pork toast,” while the butternut squash comes with maple tahini. Entrées are protein heavy, including several fish and meat dishes like beef short ribs, monkfish, lamb shoulder, hanger steak, and crispy chicken. In fact, cuts of meat are available to take home at Resto’s own butcher shop, the Cannibal, next door. The beer selection is extensive with more than 60 Belgian varieties, from Affligem to Westmalle. Chocolate, another Belgian specialty, is served in a bourbon torte with brown sugar crème fraîche.
