Situated amid the comedy clubs and tourist-focused eateries of Bleecker Street, this seafood restaurant offers over a dozen different types of mussel dishes. Some are traditional, like the bouillabaisse, but there are also internationally inspired options including Thai mussels, made with lemongrass and coconut milk, along with completely off-the-wall ideas like the recent Texas riff (made with pulled pork, barbecue sauce, and beer) and Chef’s Best (with lobster, cheese fondue, and bacon). All the dishes are prepared with Prince Edward Island mussels, and arrive in a one-pound pot with a piece of house-made bread, ready for dipping. Diners not in the mood for mollusks can choose from other options such as a generous portion of tuna tartare and guacamole, or lobster mac ‘n’ cheese, along with a few non-seafood dishes—a rib eye, for example, and fried chicken and waffles. The dining room is a long, thin room decorated in earth tones and large photographs of beachscapes, with satellite radio pumped in, complete with occasional interjections from D.J.'s. At the front of the space is a round marble bar facing a large flat-screen generally tuned to news or sports. Couples, however, are partial to the patio in the back, which has a waterfall and a small koi pond, and stays open well into the winter thanks to heat lamps and a canopy.
