Spotluck Spotlight: Mussel Bar and Grille

Located a block and a half from the Ballston Metro, this Arlington seafood staple offers delicious fresh mussels, a huge beer selection, and much more!

Surfy & Turfy Appetizer: Resting on a bed of smoked tomato aioli and spicy mayo, this tender Char Grilled Calamari is complemented with crispy pork belly that melts in your mouth.

Our New Favorite Broth: Of course you can’t leave Mussel Bar without trying some mussels! The Spicy Thai Green Curry Mussels are simmered in a broth with a kick that will keep you coming back for more. Surf for peanuts, cilantro, and basil in the light yet creamy sauce. Don’t laugh at the big spoon on the side either, chances are you’ll end up drinking this broth like soup.

Fries, Oh My: These Pommes Frites are deliciously crispy. They come with an aioli trio that will keep your taste buds on their toes. Between the trio of sauces and the spicy Thai green curry broth, don’t be surprised when these fries fly … off the table.

Under the Sea: The Chile Salt Grilled Salmon is smothered in a dry rub and char-grilled to perfection. The salmon is paired with fresh chunks of avocado and a sweet mango salsa to cut the saltiness. A tasty arugula salad with cilantro, red onion, radishes, and a light dressing also balances the dish.

Steak Salad: Deliciously juicy grilled steak on the Thai Steak Salad adds a heavier element to an otherwise refreshing green salad to keep you full ’til bedtime! The mint peanut soy vinaigrette features a secret weapon, cilantro, to stand out against the Fresno Chiles and red onions. The perfect summer snack!
