The Mannequin Pis Restaurant offers Belgian/Flemish cuisine at 18064 Georgia Ave., Olney, MD 20832. The restaurant opens at 5:00 PM for dinner every day. This is a small and popular restaurant that offers a large selection of beers and wines. Reservations are required. The menu of Mannequin Pis is similar to Sur la Place in DC because both restaurants were established by the same owners.
Mannequin Pis is a famous Brussels landmark. It is a small bronze fountain sculpture depicting a naked little boy urinating into the fountain's basin.
The restaurant is small but cozy with abstract art and beer plaques and posters on the walls. Quiet music plays in the background. The tables are covered with white table cloths protected by white paper sheets.
A bread basket and curls of butter are brought to your table while you wait for your order.
The Ragout of Wild Mushrooms is a tasty stew of mushrooms grilled in garlic butter and served on toasted bread.
The Mussel Pots consist of 1 kilogram (about 2 pounds) of mussels accompanied with Pommes Friets (French fries). The mussels are flavored with celery, onion, herbs, white wine and other ingredients like cream or mustard.
The Roasted Pork Tenderloin is wrapped in a thick slice of smoked bacon. It is accompanied with Haricots Vert (green beans) and Pommes Risolées (home fries), with an "Appalachian Mountain Blue Goat Cheese Sauce". I think they meant to say "Appalachian Mountain goat blue cheese sauce", unless the goats are really blue. This is a very tasty dish dominated by the smoky flavor of the bacon.
