Do you ever watch the Food Network? If so you have probably seen the Chef/Owner of Granville Moore’s, Teddy Folkman. He beat Bobby Flay in a mussels throwdown. He also was on season 5 of the Next Food Network star. Granted he was best known for being the guy that lied, but heck that has nothing to do with his food. Besides Teddy, Granfille Moore’s is known for Moules Frites. What is Moules Frites, why it is Mussels and Fries. I love mussels so I had to give this place a try.
Walking to the place we almost missed it and walked right by the door. The only sign is quite small and above the front door. If it wasn’t for the line outside, we would totally have missed it. Once inside we waited for a seat at the bar. Oh, if you don’t have a reservation, you will be waiting a long while for a table. Luckily we found a spot at the bar. I like the bar, you can really see how a restaurant works by watching the waitstaff. It doesn’t matter what restaurant you are in, the waitstaff always migrates to the bar. If the waitstaff is having fun, you will have fun. Plus, the bartenders will not steer you wrong when it comes to the menu. This might be a bit biased, as I bartended for 8 years, but it has not failed me.
Granville Moore’s goes through 1200 pounds of mussels and 1400 pounds of potatoes every single week. They must be doing something right. The menu is focused on a Gastropub theme that is heavily focused on the mussels, fries and dipping sauces. Don’t forget the massive selection of Belgian Beers. Chimay anyone?
