Augie’s Mussel House on King Street to Reopen on Monday

A year after Augie’s Mussel House opened for a few months as a pop-up at 1106 King Street, the restaurant is back with a permanent opening planned for Monday, Oct. 7.

“We’re ready,” said Rocky Martin, general manager for the restaurant. “When you come in, try the mussels with all of the different sauces.”

Beyond mussels, Augie’s also features a Belgian beer garden with an outdoor patio, complete with TVs that will show sporting events. The interior decorations pay homage to St. Augustine, patron saint of brewers, with a large mural and quotes reportedly from Augustine throughout the building.

The selections of mussels range from the classic with garlic, butter, white wine and tomatoes to a house-style that incorporates bacon and beer. Prices average around $16.

The restaurant also has a brunch menu for weekends and an extensive beer menu — from Belgian and Austrian Radlers to Port City, less than three miles away.

The restaurant opened in August 2018 and closed a few months later for renovations.

Augie’s is part of the Common Plate Hospitality group, which also owns Alexandria restaurants Mason Social, Urbano 116 and Catch on the Ave.
