Fodor's Review

They say Philadelphians drink more Belgian beer than Belgium does. If the rumors are true, it's because of the owners of Monk's, the seminal café with a pipeline of sours, dubbels, and saisons straight from the motherland.

Whether steamed in classic style with wine and shallots or with cream, mussels are a high point at Monk's. The fries that accompany them draw raves from the regulars who crowd the place.
