In December, I stopped by Flex Mussels in Chelsea after a random shopping trip on 34th Street.
I’ve been looking for a spot in the city that has good mussels and after doing my research, Flex Mussels topped the list. Flex is a restaurant import from “P.E.I.” ( Prince Edward Island) which immediately gives it some credibility because the foodie world claims this is the best place to source delicious mussels.
This Chelsea spot has a cool and trendy vibe, located at the ground level of a townhouse on 13th street.
During my visit, I tried the Bisque Mussels, which is deliciously made with Lobster, brandy, tomato, garlic, and cream.
Needless to say, I definitely enjoyed my impromptu solo brunch.
So, if you’re in the area, give them a try. I heard they also have good happy hour specials! Tell them the Buppie Foodie sent you!!
