The World Cup has boosted business at the restaurant's 20th Street location throughout the tournament, but the Belgium-U.S. pairing should yield a "crazy" turnout, Jadot said. The restaurant's Belgian roots—combined with the fervor surrounding the U.S. advancing to the knockout stage of the tournament—should yield huge crowds.
Petite Abeille hasn't rolled out many promotions or specials ahead of the game. Throughout the World Cup, the restaurant has offered $4 Stella Artois beers even when Belgium isn't playing. But Belgium fans at Petite Abeille on Tuesday said it draws Belgians in the area for the country's games, regardless.
"It's the place to come if you're Belgian," said Wendy Laurent, who came to the restaurant in a red, yellow and black Belgium jersey and hat around noon on Tuesday.

Laurent, who is originally from the U.S., absorbed enthusiasm for the Belgian team from her husband Michel Laurent, who grew up in Belgium and has known Jadot for about 20 years.
Her husband sent her a text with a picture showing draped Belgian flags over most of the windows of their house, leaving one for an American flag.
"We don't know what flag is coming down yet," she said.

They came to Petite Abeille about four hours ahead of the game's 4 p.m. start time, and said they expected to stay through its entirety. Michel showed up in a jersey, bringing along sunglasses and a wig in Belgian colors.
Jadot couldn't immediately provide figures for the restaurant's sales during World Cup games, but said that he has seen business increase during games. One part of Tuesday's possible crowd, the group of eight that was expected to join the Laurents on the Belgian side, would probably spend "a couple hundred dollars" there, Wendy Laurent said.
