Lunch/Brunch: Mussel and Burger Bar
If you haven’t been to Mussel and Burger Bar yet, what the heck are you waiting for? Mussel and Burger Bar comes from the team who created Guaca Mole and Havana Rumba located at 9200 Taylorsville Road, somewhat close to the Hurstbourne intersection. Mussel and Burger Bar opened back in Feburary with a menu boasting six different types of mussels, a dozen custom burgers with 100% angus, house made brioche buns, hand cut pomme frites with truffle oil and served on wooden planks.
But a lot of folks don’t know they started serving brunch last month! On Sunday they will be serving Brunch 12-4 and their regular dinner menu from 12-8:30. Check out their Brunch menu:
