Village Voice's Description
Petite Abeille, the Belgian chainlet, does all the Euro staples quite well: steamed mussels with twice-cooked fries, croque monsieur, Flemish beef stew, and stoemp, a mixture of mashed vegetables with or without sausage. Most dishes stay under $20, and the portions are worth well more than that. The signature 9-ounce burger oozes with cheddar, as pancetta and a red dressing sticks the whole thing together. The lighter salmon burger topped with cilantro, red peppers, and avocado is just as memorable, and like most dishes on the menu is served with a side of addictive Belgian fries. Brunch can get crowded -- yes, Belgian waffles dominate the weekend menu -- and fluffy omelets come in various combinations with smoked salmon, bacon, and various cheeses. But all are served with sides of stoemp. Bite-size poeffertjes and mini Flemish pancakes are hard to find better anywhere else. --Jessica Goodman

Colin Ferrel would have enjoyed Belgium if only he had dined at Petite Abielle whilst on his little stint in Bruges. The best cure-all brunch on a lazy Sunday morning, Petite Abeille (French for "Little Bee) is the cozy neighborhood spot to enjoy the waning weekend. Excellent omelet selection, un croque monsieur to die for, and a menu of waffles destined to give you diabetes. And, for those who can handle it, Abeille has a fairly substantial drink menu complete with belini's and Bloody Mary's. It's reasonably priced (byNew York City standards), and you can eek by with an enormous waffle with fresh fruit, coffee, and bread for under fifteen dollars.
