Hidden in an unassuming row house, Granville Moore’s is a rustic neighborhood gastropub that prepares a thousand pounds of mussels and potatoes every week – all from a kitchen not much bigger than a walk-in closet.
The venue also serves an array of sandwiches and steaks to the hungry regulars who flood in every night, but the moules-frites is by far its biggest draw, second only perhaps to the allure of sixty-plus Belgian beers.
Matching polished thick timber bars run the length of the establishment’s two floors, each set beneath exposed-beam ceilings and featuring rows of stools quickly claimed by boisterous young professionals, tattooed hipsters, and dedicated beer lovers.
When weather permits, foodies from across the city skip the narrow indoor dining area and its dozen candlelit but cramped wooden tables, heading instead to an enclosed patio in the back, where simple benches offer space for them to enjoy a nice big bottle of Affligem Tripel.
Once the kitchen closes, the digital jukebox cranks up with a selection of crowd-chosen tunes, and servers rush to pull more bottles from the wooden fridges behind the bar.
Always bustling but rarely rowdy, Granville Moore’s is the kind of place where a diverse clientele unites for a common love: a good bottle of Belgian beer...and more mussels.
Savvy groups know to call ahead Mondays through Thursdays between 5 and 6:15pm to make one of only a handful of available reservations. Otherwise, expect a wait! But not to worry – just give the host your cell phone so you can go check out the neighborhood. They’ll call you when a space opens up.
