Biere, moules et frites. Those are the specialties at Robert Wiedmaier’s ode to the Belgian roadside dive, Mussel Bar and Grille, which opened March 10 in Baltimore’s Harbor East neighborhood.
The 8,000-square-foot restaurant will open at 1350 Lancaster St., home of the former Townhouse Kitchen + Bar. It will be the third outpost for Mussel Bar, which you can also find in Bethesda and Arlington, Va. In addition to its signature mussels, beer and fries, the restaurant also serves steak frites, wood-fired pizzas, fish and other seafood dishes. The RW Restaurant Group hired 75 to work at the restaurant.
RW Restaurant Group also operates Marcel’s, Wildwood and Brabo.
