Petite Abeille, French for "little bee," gets its name from a Belgian children's book, which figures prominently in the restaurant's decor. Standout dishes include the hearty carbonnades flamandes (beer beef stew), seared salmon over vegetable couscous and, naturally, Belgian waffles. And true to the nation's rich chocolaty tradition, the Belgian pedigree also figures into the hot chocolate, which is sure to please cocoa fans of all ages.
