Situated in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, this no-frills pub is known for its immense selection of Belgian brews. The dim, narrow space contains two bars—one up front and one in back, separated by a handful of wooden booths. Some 20 beers on tap include the orange-scented Triple Karmeliet and the Flemish Sour Ale, brewed exclusively for Monk's in Ghent, Belgium. Drafts are joined by hundreds of bottled beers, including a multitude of American microbrews. Popular menu items are the burgers and the mussels, available in a variety of preparations such as Thai curry with sour ale and coconut milk.
The small portion of mussels is actually huge, so opt for the small unless you plan on sharing.
