Two blocks south of the Morgan Avenue L stop in Bushwick, there’s a corner space with an illuminated sign that may vaguely remind you of 7th grade social studies. The sign says Benelux, which is the name of the union of three European countries (Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg). Whether or not you remember/care about that fact, you should head inside for some drinks and bar food inspired by what’s served in that region. There are some authentic dishes - like a Belgian sandwich stuffed with fries, roasted ham, and mornay sauce - but the best things here are the burger and steak frites. The burger is topped with melted gouda, and the dry-aged steak is covered in a rich butter sauce. There are plenty of tables where you can have a casual meal with a group, and there’s also a bar if you just want some Happy Hour drinks or a burger and a beer.
