Best moules frites in SF

Ok hounds, please help a recently-transplanted-from-the-East-Coast pregnant lady satisfy her craving for moules frites. I prefer classic sauces (marinieres, etc.) but at this point I would probably eat any sauce as long as the mussels were fresh and the frites crispy.
My fetus and I (and my husband!!) thank you in advance.
Also recommend Couleur Cafe. While they went through a rough patch a few months ago, the consistency and quality is now back on track (new chef). Had a delicious variation on the classic last night: the moules nicoise, cooked in a wine broth with lots of garlic, basil and sherry vinegar. I also really like the moules Potrero, with a maniere type broth flavored with tarragon and a bit of fresh tomato. The frites at Couleur are always among the best.
Plouf is the traditional recommendation for moules frites. My other go-to location - which in my experience has been more consistent - is Fringale. They have been on the menu for seventeen years, and they are always good.

I can't vouch for them b/c I don't eat them, but my aunt loved the moules frites at Baker Street Bistro. I can vouch for the fries - they are fantastic!
