Bar Melusine

Our love letter to the French Atlantic, Bar Melusine's hustle bustle provides the perfect backdrop for the maritime flavors of Normandy and Brittany.

Our travels to Normandy and Brittany over the years have always left us inspired (and very full). Our thoughts and conversations following these visits routinely center around how we might bring home our favorite bits of the French Atlantic coast.

With these thoughts in mind, Sea Creatures welcomed Bar Melusine to the family in fall 2015. Named for the mythical French water spirit, Bar Melusine is Walrus's playful French Atlantic cousin. Melusine's casual, bustling atmosphere, bathed in a sea of greens, provides the perfect back drop for the maritime flavors of Normandy and Brittany.

"Re-imagining the flavors of Normandy and Brittany, using ingredients from our corner of the world is so fun! We are thrilled to be serving lamb, meat and vegetables from our very own La Ferme des Anes..."

- Chef-Owner Renee Erickson

Both raw and cooked seafood, meats, and vegetables accompany a focused and carefully curated wine list, focused on French whites by the glass. Think raw oysters, savory buckwheat crêpes, moules-frites, pré-salé lamb, steak tartare, pork rillons, and gésiers confits. Thoughtful vermouth- and brandy-centered cocktails fill out the experience.

Come warm up with our Gulliver's Toddy with a dash of Tim's smoked peppered tincture.
