Super nice staff and absolutely delicious mussels, unsure what more to ask for! Wine selection is strong and affordable, and dessert was surprisingly good!

We dined here on a Friday evening. Service was great and pretty fast too, even though the place was full. Mussels were great too, definitely worth a visit!

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.

This was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. The restaurant flies in PEI mussels everyday. The mussels are steamed in a delicious broth with over 20+ broths offered. I had Thai broth, it was brimming with delicious mussels and...More

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
