Sur La Place is a cozy, fine dining gem nestled in the renowned Palisades area of Washington D.C. A Product of its' sister restaurant, Mannequin Pis, located in Olney, Maryland, Sur La Places specializes in exquisite Belgian cuisine. With over 20 varieties of Mussels and over 30 varieties of fine Belgian beer, one comes to realize that Sur La Place is not your ordinary restaurant. The menu takes a trip through Belgium, from Grilled Duck Pate or Wild Boar and Cranberry Sausage to a Seafood Bouillabaisse with Gambass, Mussels, Salmon, Sea Scallops, and Lobster. Fantastic desserts and a fully stocked bar put the cap on a great experience. With its exposed brick, deep wood hues, and dark red drapery, Sur La Place is an excellent choice for a romantic date, a business meeting, or simply a fine night out in the city. It's knowledgeable and service oriented staff are always eager to serve you and we look forward to having you as our guest.

"Groupon had a special coupon (about 50% off) so it was an incentive to try this Belgium restaurant. If you are into Belgium beers, than you
would be in mini heaven as the place has a wide variety of said beers. Personally, we prefer wine to beer and the selection of wines is rather
limited. As to the food and especially the mussels, I was disappointed . There are about ten offerings of mussels and the one we chose was dull and devoid of taste. We shared one kilo of mussels and left quite a few in the pot. There is another Belgium restaurant across the street and their mussels are superior.
