This past weekend I finally went to Mussel Bar in Bethesda. I could have taken the Metro, but since it was the weekend and the trip would have meant switching from Orange to Red (thus turning it into at least an hour trip)…. driving was only 30 minutes….. so in an effort to expand my driving horizons…. I put the top down on the car and headed out.
They have a nice sized dining area, bar area, and a pretty decent sized patio.
Obviously at a place named Mussel Bar…. you’re eating mussels…..
I ordered the Provencal – Tomato, Capers, Basil – I LOVE Capers, so that’s why I chose this version.
YUM! Mussels were steamed well…. only 1 mussel didn’t open….
Served with frites and a dipping sauce….
Fries were crispy and seasoned well.
Mussel Bar also has a huge beer selection…..
I opted for the Antigoon (Pale Ale)…. pretty good.
Can’t wait to go back.
