Can an upscale Belgian beer cafe work on one of the weirdest, wildest stretches of Colfax Avenue? Absolutely. Not only is the Cheeky Monk a destination restaurant for all you European beer snobs looking for unpronounceable brews made by monks who've dedicated their lives to Jesus and zymurgy, but it also happens to be a great place to sample the rather unique cuisine of the Benelux -- all mussels and frites and sausages and some of the best sauerkraut ever made. You can thank the folks who brought us a true Brit pub in Aurora -- the Royal Hilltop -- for giving Colfax this cheeky concept.
