Inspiration for Robert Wiedmaier's Mussel Bar is an old-world Belgian roadhouse serving Bière, Moules & Frites, the kind of place where Chef in his youth would head late night to unwind with kitchen colleagues, eat simple food and listen to good music. He's one of the first to 'muscle' the craze and honor his Belgian roots in the DC area with bringing the savory mollusks to the forefront of his own gastro-pubs with the original location in Bethesda, MD that opened in July, 2010.
Much more than mussels, Mussel Bar & Grille offers a wide-range of casual dining fare that include grilled and wood-fired dishes of meats, fish, and pizzas (Belgian tarts), seasonal salads and soups and crafted desserts. Belgian classics of Carbonnade, iced seafood platters, onion soup with Gruyere cheese and chocolate weave its way thru the menu to accompany the expansive Belgian beer list including Chef Wiedmaier's exclusive brew, Antigoon.
Open all day, seven days a week, Mussel Bar & Grille is place to stop in for a quick bite or a leisurely meal in a stylish, but edgy setting that is welcoming to all.
