Excellent mussels, terrific Belgian beer selection

Ate here last night for the first time. Divy, brick-walled, narrow dining area is deceptive -- you would never guess that this place serves possibly the best mussels in DC. I wasn't craving anything in particular, but when I saw that they'd won the City Paper award for best mussels for eight years... read more

The brisket hash was amazing. Can't beat bloody Mary's with bacon in them! Reservations are recommended.

If you're new to the Atlas district, don't comment on the size of the restaurants. They are old homes. Narrow homes. Focus on the food. The food is good and the authentic hipster, non-lumber-sexual vibe is refreshing. Eat some mussels. Enjoy a nice beer. People watch. Done.

I've been to this hole in the wall in the past and thought it would be a fun stop for a gorup of 8 friends I was taking on a pub crawl through the Atlas District on H Street, NE. Made a reservation well in advance but when we got there they said it would be an hour or TWO.... More

I had the steak and cheese sandwich and it was delicious. The beef was cooked perfectly. It was extremely tender and seasoned well. The fries and accompanying sauces were awesome. There were spots where the fries were too salty where the seasoning clumped a little but they were still great. My husband had the summer mussels and enjoyed them. Great... More

I had seen this featured on the Food Network and had wanted to try it for awhile. I found myself in DC for a convention and I brought a couple of my Colleagues with me. This is truly a small space, our cab actually missed it and we had to walk the final part of the trip. It is out... More

We dined on mussels and hanger steak with frites, and all were EXCELLENT. Service in the upstairs dining area was a bit slow, as the bartender also serves as the waiter up there, so when the place gets busy, they can be a little stretched. He was working very hard, and was very efficient, but it seems that's a bit... More

Granville Moore's is a hole in the wall sort of place you could easily pass by, but I sought it out after seeing it featured on Throwdown with Bobby Flay. It is literally a small, dark tavern. You would not expect to get such good food here, but the mussels and frittes are so, so delicious. There are different varieties... More

This is a hidden gem that we swear Thomas Jefferson used to visit - it's that old! We were just visiting DC last year and I came across this place online as they have gotten stellar reviews by the locals. The beer selection is great if not a little expensive (great Belgian beer usually is) but it was the mussels... More
