  1. Waterzooii(maybe only "1" "i") in Garden City has wonderful mussels. You get them by the pot with your choice of sauce on them. Great beers there too! Enjoy!!

      Waterzooi it is. The mussels with goat cheese are my favorite. Really good place.

        I haven't been in there in probably a year, so outdated information, but my favorite mussels at Waterzooi by far have been those in lobster sauce.

          I too, like the lobster sauce. But also like the oreganata. sometimes there are too many breadcrumbs but the flavor overall is what I think of when I think of mussels (non-marinara)

      2. Will third you on Waterzooi in Garden City. My favorite has always been the paella moule pot, bring a friend or two because one feeds about four.

        Also don't miss the sweet potato gnocci.

        1. Add my vote to Waterzooii. Consistently the best mussels and frites.

          1. ... a bunch of belgian brews on tap to quaff it down with and good crusty bread to mop the sauce with...
