Where can I find mussels in New Orleans? I am interested in buying them, but I would also enjoy any resturant recomendations.
I've eaten them at:
Clementine's on Westank on Whitney
Chateau du Lac on Met. Rd.
Cafe Degas on Esplanade
Iris on Jeanette (until they move to the QTR)
La Crepe Nanou on Robert
Cafe Granada on Carrollton
Martinique on Magazine
Patois on Laurel
Laurentino's on Transcontinental
My favorites are Irene's and Cafe Grenada. Both in tomato based sauces. Tommy's is supposed to be the same as Irene's but I find them (as all their food) not nearly as good as Irene's.. Lilette's are good, Rio Mar"s with chorizo sound better than they taste, Bistro at the Maison De Ville, does a white wine prep, topped with frites and a glob of aioli. Lola's has a cold, marinated verson as an app. Not my to my liking. WF sells them at a reasonable price (considering they are not found in our waters). Really easy and quick to make at home and you'll get much more and probably much better for your effort.
