Sunday was the hubby’s birthday so we need to celebrate. Birthdays are for celebrating not ignoring. I had scored a Living Social Coupon for Brasserie Beck. We had never been there so why not? They are known for their mussels and Belgian beer. They have a open kitchen in the middle of the restaurant. The decor is sleek. Blue tiles and a glass wine cellar. We ordered the full order of mussels, I ordered the smoked wood bacon and mushroom mussels and the hubby had the red spicy Thai mussels. A full order of mussels come with frites with 3 kinds of mayo. Plain, tomato with brandy and a curry mayo. The beers we ordered were a hefeweiss beer and a Kesteel Donker a smooth, non bitter dark beer. The service was attentive and was great at pairing the beer with the mussels. And of course we had dessert. The special was their take on strawberry shortcake.
