The Press of Atlantic City follows up on Y&H’s earlier report about D.C. chef Robert Weidmaier‘s forthcoming Mussel Bar on the Jersey shore with some additional details about the casino-level eatery. For starters, the decor will feature “knotted oak wainscoting and floors, mussel-shaped ceiling drops as well as beer bottle and rope light fixtures.” Mussel shells will also be embedded into the concrete 26-seat bar. The menu, meanwhile, will feature eight styles of mussels and the beer program will include 23 taps, eight beers in cask barrels and more than 130 bottles. “There will be a wall of refrigerated beer,” Wiedmaier tells the paper. “There will actually be ladders to reach the beer.” Developers of the sprawling Revel resort, where Weidmaier’s new restaurant will be located, have also put out a promotional video about the D.C. chef’s sudsy seaside eatery, which really plays up the whole rock ‘n’ roll theme. Check it out below.
