Make My Mom Happy- Brunch WIth MUSSELS

Going to take my mom out for brunch but what she really is craving is some good mussels. Does anyone have any GOOD recs for a spot that serves brunch with some great fresh mussels?
Thank you!

  1. I'd recommend B Cafe (I've only been to the UWS location but there's one on the UES as well). We've been for dinner a couple of times (not brunch) and the food was really good with warm and informative service. It's more of a good neighborhood spot rather than "destination". DH had the mussels and thought they were very good.

    1. in the UWS, B Cafe and Bistro Cassis both do brunch and mussels. i'm not much for seafood so i can't comment on how good they are at either place.

        1. Cafe de Bruxelles has a lovely brunch and the best mussels in the city.

              I odn't know about the brunch they have, but the mussels are great, as are the frites. Reminds me that I need to get down there soon. I've always liked their apple/endive salad as a starter.

          2. Jubilee on E 54th which always specializes in mussels has them on their brunch menu too.

              Second Jubilee. I don't know where they get their mussels, but they're magic.
