    Mussel Bar & Grille -- Bethesda, MD

    Mussel Bar & Grille in Bethesda, MD is one of the best restaurants for true Belgian bistro fare. The atmosphere is reminiscent of an old European pub with an edgy, modern vibe complete with hanging sculptures and glass-front beer coolers. The mussels offered come in array of flavors that reach far beyond those of the Belgian territory – a personal favorite is the Spicy Green Curry Thai Mussels. Other than mussels, the restaurant also offers wood-fired tarts [which are the Flemish version of pizza] artisan cheese and cured meats, and a serious list of European and domestic beers. This gastro-pub is also one of the only places where you can find Antigoon, which is a Belgian beer brewed exclusively for the chef and owner Robert Wiedmaier.
