If there is one word that defines the Robert Wiedmaier
Restaurant Group, a diverse group of eight establishments that
spans the gamut from fine dining to pub grub with live music, it is
Hospitality is the bedrock of our approach at every level, the
core of our values in an industry that is ever in flux and, more
and more, in thrall to fad and fashion.
Hospitality is timeless. It is what the very first restaurants
endeavored to give to their road-weary guests: restoration; a
refreshment of body and spirit.
Whether you are a regular at one of our restaurants or just
discovering us for the first time, we strive to send you away
feeling lighter, and better, than you did when you walked in.
Feeling as if you have been taken care of by good friends.
And that philosophy doesn't just extend to those restaurants
that you most think of when you are in need of a special place to
go for a birthday or anniversary, or when you want to take a
client. To Marcels, our flagship in Foggy Bottom, an elegant love
letter to the glories of classic French cooking that consistently
stands atop the various best-of lists in the nation's capital
(including a top 5 rating from Open Table). To Siren, in Logan
Circle, our newest restaurant, a seafood emporium featuring the
finest fish and shellfish sourced from around the globe. To
Brasserie Beck, a lively and evocative destination on the edge of
Penn Quarter, where locals and travelers alike flock for
superlative charcuterie, towering seafood platters, and the area's
most comprehensive selection of Belgian beers, including, Antigoon,
brewed exclusively for Chef Wiedmaier.
This emphasis on superlative hospitality extends, too, to our
more casual restaurants in the Maryland and Virginia suburbs. To
our two locations of Mussel Bar and Grille, in Bethesda and
Arlington, the premier destinations in the region for mussels and
beer, modeled after the haunts that chef Wiedmaier used to frequent
in Brussels with his fellow cooks. To Wildwood Kitchen, a
neighborhood bistro in Bethesda where the focus is on lighter, more
healthful preparations (all dishes are free of butter and cream) of
classic Mediterranean cooking. To Lock 72 in Potomac, which
delivers simple sophistication in a relaxed, drop-in setting. Even
to Villain & Saint in Bethesda, a venue for the best live music
in the region, where, we are proud to say, the pub grub is as good
as the authentic sounds coming from the stage.
Whenever and wherever you join us, we look forward to seeing
you, and making your time with us memorable and delicious.
