The team of Fernando, Christina and Yaniel Martinez (husband, wife and cousin, respectively) who gave Louisville Guaca Mole last year, will open their second restaurant, Mussel & Burger Bar, 9200 Taylorsville Rd. in Jeffersontown on Feb. 4.
Those who remember the site – just east of Hurstbourne Parkway in the middle of J-town’s retail cluster – as the short-lived Caffé Perusa will recall it as an upscale spot, impeccably furnished and big enough for duck hunting. (Click here for interior photos.)
Expect a much more understated restaurant this time around, said Fernando Martinez, who calls the new spot “our idea of an American bistro.”
