Joe has been drooling over La Trappe ever since the sign went up. A Belgian beer bar within stumbling distance of your apartment is all any beer lover can ask for. We even went so far as to knock on the door and peer in the windows to try to figure out when it would open. Finally, Tablehopper gave us the good news:
“Also in North Beach, if Friday’s inspection goes according to plan, ~LA TRAPPE~ should be having its grand opening on Saturday the 17th, starting at 6pm. In homage to the former tenant, Buca Giovanni, there will be some rabbit on the menu, a rabbit stew with prunes and Affligem Dubbel (a Belgian beer) sauce. There will also be steak frites, using meat from Marin Sun Farms, and ten beers on tap (eventually there will be 15, then a hoped-for 20, as things proceed). Breakfast is when the famed waffles with pearl sugar will appear, and there will be lunch too—look for those hours to be added later on. Initial hours will be 5pm–midnight. 800 Greenwich St. at Mason, 415-440-TRAP.”
We can’t make it to opening night, unfortunately, but you’d better believe we’ll be there the next morning, eating waffles and drinking off our hangovers with a nice Belgian.
