I rarely review restaurants, but Flex Mussels is such a fantastic gem, I feel like I must share! The menu is great for mussels and non-mussels lovers. It was hard to choose between the 15 or so options for mussels. I ultimately went with the Thai, but it was a hard decision between that, the Classic and the Bangkok. Whatever... More

The two dozen oysters we had to start were about a hundred dollars. While the remainder the meal, a bottle of wine, three orders of mussels and one fish and chips, and six donuts for dessert were not terribly expensive, the tab for four with tip was close to three hundred dollars. That being said, everything was good. Oysters were... More

A friend live in the city and recommended Flex Mussels. We were visiting during Christmas and made a reservation. The restaurant is not large, so I would make a reservation regardless of the time of year. We had a party of four and all of our mussel entrees were delicious. The meal was served with great bread to soak up... More

Had an amazing dinner at Flex Mussels at their NYC 13th Street location on Saturday night, when I took a Canadian pal there to celebrate her birthday. I had been there 2 or 3 times, and LOVE their flavored pots of mussels. To die for delicious! My friend, who favors Asian cuisine order the Thai flavored version, while I went... More

If you love mussels this is the place to go. Mussels in wine, Thai mussels, mussels apps, mussels entrees and more. Lots of other choices, all delicious. Don't miss the oyster which are fresh, sweet and pristine clean. Octopus was also nice over beans. Great truffle fries. Miss the fish and chips which was unimpressive. Clean, contemporary atmosphere. Definitely need... More

If you love mussels, you'll LOVE Flex !. With friends, we've been dined here a number of times and never disappointed. Having to choose over 25 varieties is both fun and an experience of anticipation. We usually all decide to order our own mussel bowl and then proceed to share the amazing taste varieties. Service has been excellent and for... More

They know how to cook mussels, their oysters are great (both raw and fried), and their doughnuts are crazy good.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
