On the surface, Villain & Saint - a Haight-Ashbury-inspired rock 'n' roll music hall in downtown Bethesda, Maryland - might represent the polar-opposite vision of veteran DC chef Robert Wiedmaier's flagship Marcel's, the ultimate in fine-dining refinement, yet there is so much more than meets the eye and palate with Robert. Over the years, many have become aware of Robert's enthusiasm for motorcycles; but his true identity is exposed here at V&S as he pays homage to the freewheeling lifestyle of the rock 'n' roll era, with a preferred repertoire ranging from Blues and Jazz, to Indie Rock, Sixties and Heavy Metal. It was lucky he found partners for the RW Restaurant Group-chef Brian McBride, Frank Shull and Joe Lively-who all share that same passion.
