Best Moules Frites in Manhattan?

Looking for recos.... !

  1. First place that leaps to mind is Jubilee on East 54th street.

    1. I haven't tried too many around the city, but last fall I had some tasty ones at Jane. The mussels were almost too salty, but the broth was very flavorful aside from that, and the slight hint of rosemary on the fries was really, really, great, especially dipped in the mussels liquid.

        1. I'll second Bruxelles, and add Markt and L'Enfants Terribles and Casanis. I've never had either an amazingly good or an amazingly bad version of moules frites, come to think of it. They've all been fine. Of course, I'd probably eat a stick if it came in a saffron cream sauce.

            Second the Markt recommendation. Great crispy fries and interesting sauces for the moules.

              Third Bruxelles and still best fries in NYC after all these years

                I'll FOURTH Bruxelles. Great moules frites. Generous portions. Great atmosphere.

                Not to mention the nice Belgian beers.

                While I love Casa Mono, there are no frites w/the moules.
