    The best mussels I've had in Seattle (and I seem to eat them everywhere I go) were at Matt's in the Market. The mussels themselves were excellent, but the broth - oh the broth! We all wanted straws to slurp it up with. It was the perfect balance of piquant, winy, savory, and buttery!

      My favorite moules frites was at Campagne. Excellent.

      I also love the curry broth at Ray's Cafe.

        Ivar's Acre's of Clams Penn Cove mussels in coconut curry sauce has been my favorite so far.

        Eva also has really good mussels. The seasoning changes seasonally but they are always good.

          Maximillien's at the Market offers exceptional mussels served several different ways. The classic French preperation is wonderful. (Choose the upstairs bar rather than the downstairs restaurant.)

            They have been terrible at Maximilien lately. Absolutely awful (I've had them twice in the past month). I don't think they were ever exceptional--they used to be great for $2.95 at happy hour on the deck, though.

            I had good mussels at BOKA recently.They were a great happy hour deal though I'm not sure they're on special every day.
