Restaurant Group

Part of RW Restaurant Group

Robert Wiedmaier, Executive Chef and CEO of RW Restaurant Group, counts himself fortunate to be surrounded in his growing enterprise by a strong team he regards as family. His Corporate Chef and Partner, Brian McBride, supervises all kitchen operations and menu development, with a focus on all locations of Mussel Bar & Grille. CPA and Partner, Joe Lively, rounds-out the team with 40-plus years of accounting expertise and co-owner of multiple private businesses including a Bethesda restaurant/bar. The expansion of the restaurant group, and ongoing efforts to grow and improve the business model, led the partners to form Sugar Toads Restaurant Consulting, to assist others in achieving the fullest possibilities of restaurant development.

Robert Wiedmaier has been the recipient of numerous awards throughout his career, is a favorite of critics, and is frequently honored in the press. It was no surprise when he was named "Chef of the Year" by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington in 2009. Inducted in Brussels into the Knighthood of the Brewers Mashstaff in the summer of 2012, and later tapped by the U.S. State Department to participate in its Diplomatic Culinary Partnership Initiative with the James Beard Foundation, Wiedmaier can now add "Knight" and "Chef-Ambassador" to his impressive Curriculum Vitae.
