Granville Moore's Washington Reviews
A highlight of any visit to H Street in DC Aug 13, 2010
While not looking like much from the outside, or even on the inside for one who has just located Granville Moore's for the first time, all notions about the look of the place are quickly appreciated once served one of their dozens of selections of cold belgian beer and a staple bowl of frites or mussels.
It's true; the only thing indicating the existance of this place is a simple sign above a simple door on the front of a rather dilapitaed looking building that says "Granville Moore, MD." Once inside, one finds a dimly lit atmosphere, and no televisions...but often a crowd of thirsty and hungry visitors, pouring over an extensive beer menu and a Belgian influenced food menu.
As mentioned, no visit to Granville Moore's would be complete without ordering a bowl of frites and a bowl of mussels to share with your table. Notable is that both of these dishes caused celebrity chef Bobby Flay to conceed defeat to executive chef Teddy Folkman, when he simply could not match the goodness of the spices and dipping sauces served with the mussels and the special way he spices and twice-fries the hand-cut potatoes for the frites.
Come hungry and thirsty, and leave full and hopefully nicely buzzed off of the excellent beers at Granville Moore's!
