Mussels in Brooklyn! Please....

We have a hankering for mussels, but we would prefer to eat them some place between Prospect Heights and Brooklyn Heights! No Williamsburgh please! Any ideas? Our kitchen is in the second week of renovations and the place is mess... we need to get out! Help!

    12th Street Bar and Grill on 8th Avenue has fantastic mussels. They're served in a curry-flavored, slightly creamy sauce. Not sure if that could be considered between Prospect Heights and Brooklyn Heights.

      Al di la in Park Slope has the most succulent mussels. I think they're Bouchot. They serve it with a thick slice of grilled garlicy bread underneath so the bread soaks up the juices but still stays a little crusty. So good.
