We picked this Flex location to meet after work since it was a mid point. I'd never been but my friend visited previously and suggested it. I selected a cocktail at the bar while I waited (bad choice). After we were seated I ended up...More

Not that there aren't other delights on the menu, but the mussels are the main attraction. The portions are hearty, but not to much for one person. You'll need extra bread for the broth. Gonna wanna soak up every bit of that liquid gold. The...More

Spare, crowded space with a good vibe. Approximately one million ways to prepare mussels, and really good bread to sop up the whatever you have them in. Hard to have a better meal. The appetizers were surprisingly good. Good bar scene later. Opentable.

Had a nice dinner at the restaurant. If you like mussels this is the place for you as there is a very broad choice of sauces and styles. There is a limited selection of non-mussel dishes

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
