Despite the name, the “bar” section of Mussel Bar—chef Robert Wiedmaier’s newest restaurant—isn’t that big, but the sturdy wooden chairs, chalkboards, and open kitchen make it an inviting spot to sample the long list of Belgian beers. During happy hour (Monday through Friday 4:30 to 6:30), Brabo Pils, a fruity golden lager, and Stella Artois go for $2.75. The menu includes eight varieties of mussels (try the creamy Chimay variety with Old Bay, shallots, and bacon) and wood-fired pizzas.
