What Will You Order at Mussel Bar and Grille, The Maxwell? Mussels or Pizza?

Whether you’re a seafood connoisseur or prefer to relax with a few slices of pizza, Mussel Bar and Grille probably has something that will hit the spot.

Located just moments from The Maxwell, this popular Arlington restaurant serves plenty of seafood, of course, with a particular focus on mussels. You can order yours steamed in a traditional white wine, lemon, and garlic broth, or you can go for something more unusual, like mussels in a spicy Thai green curry topped with peanuts and cilantro, or a broth featuring the earthy richness of wild mushrooms, truffle cream, and smoked bacon. Entrees like grilled brisket burger and smoked pork ribs appeal to the landlubbers

Don’t forget that this place serves pizza! Pizzas here are fired in a custom brick oven and topped with gourmet ingredients. Go for a pizza heaped high with black grapes, rosemary, pancetta, and honey, or try a bit of duck confit with delicata squash, ricotta, and crispy sage.
