On Our Radar:
Dress Your Mussels in Butter
Posted by:  Rin-rin Yu

The lettering on the outside makes it easy to order: "Eat Bertha's Mussels," it reads. And there's really no reason to come to Bertha's except to try their delicious mussels and variety of sauces, especially those involving butter. There's garlic butter and capers, butter and lemon, butter and basil, butter and spinach and tarragon. There are also other choices, like sour cream, but mussels are a perfect excuse for eating lots and lots of butter. Bertha's also has a number of other tasty seafood items, such as a catch-of-the-day, crabcakes, chowders, shrimp and escargot. If you're not a seafood fan, you really shouldn't come to Bertha's, but it does have decent burgers and a happening bar with live music. It's a bit of a maze to navigate from bar to restaurant, since the restaurant is situated in what seems to be once someone's house, as are many things in Baltimore, and the inside is rather dark for its lack of many windows. But there's a whole lot to look at: random fishing equipment, items fished from the harbor, a whole ceiling lit up green with beer bottles. Inside, the fish is frying, the fiddle is playing, the atmosphere is alive.
