About Mussel Bar Bethesda

Chef Robert Wiedmaier's Mussel Bar & Grille Bethesda evokes the roadside drives outside Brussels that he used to haunt in his youth, after-hours, with fellow cooks. Rustic wood paneling, big black board menus, live rock-n-roll, and black-and-white photographs of and by the chef himself make for a distinctly relaxing atmosphere. Besides the delectable selection of "Washington State, Penn Cove" mussels [try the Wild Shroom with Pancetta, Parmesan, and Truffle Cream,] Wiedmaier, partner chef Brian McBride, and chef de cuisine Daniel Cahall offer a tempting array of flat-crusted savory Belgian tartes - a northern European cousin of the pizza, and a dizzying selection of artisan beers. Hearty breakfasts are served on weekends.
