NEW YORK CITY — A dim sum restaurant with an exclusive Peking duck offering and a bar that serves 50 special cocktails, one for each state, are two of the new establishments that join the New York City food scene this week.

Belgian Beer Café at 220 Fifth Ave. in Flatiron

An international chain of European-inspired cafes and bars has opened its first New York City location. Belgium Beer Café boasts up to 40 bottled and 10 draft beers including Hoegaarden, Chimay and Stella Artois. Classic Belgian dishes will be on the menu, such as cheese, mussels and vol-au-vent, a puff pastry usually filled with chicken.

Grandma's Dim Sum at 40-24 College Point Boulevard in Flushing

A recently-opened dim sum restaurant is offering a limited number of Peking ducks — only 20 per day — so that each roasted bird can be perfected with a family recipe. Cindy Ng, who grew up in Hong Kong, is the owner of Grandma's Dim Sum. She gets her ducks fresh from a New Jersey farm each week.

Kilo Bravo at 180 N. 10th St. in Williamsburg

Kilo Bravo opened Thursday with a menu of 50 cocktails representing all 50 states. Patrons can sip on The Turnpike, a New Jersey inspired cocktail similar to a Long Island Iced tea or a Cape Codder, which represents Massachusetts with vodka, club soda and cranberry and lime juice.

BV’s Grill at 919 Third Ave. in Midtown East

A low-key spinoff of Bobby Van's Steakhouse has opened, pairing its classic steaks with more casual food. BV's 5000-square-foot space will serve up entrees that include a $42 filet mignon and a dry-aged bone-in ribeye for just under $50 as well as a burger for $17. The location also has a takeout counter and café area.
