Looking for some great mussels? Adventure on up to Flex Mussels at 82nd street (Between Lexington and 3rd Ave).
I am no mussels connoisseur, but these were absolutely delicious. Annie and I went there with some friends this past Sunday and had a fabulous and filling meal.
I would recommend to definitely go with 3-5 people to share one to two large buckets of mussels.
You may be paying a little bit more than you would like. A bucket of mussels range from $18 – $24, but they are huge – and certainly worth it. Also, they have delicious sides such as hand-cut fries, brussel sprouts and many other options.

Mussels and donuts? Don’t knock it til you try it…They have many different flavors including wild blueberry, chocolate, Fluffernutter, cinnamon sugar, salted caramel and more.
