moules frites in the east village area.

where are some good moules frites in the EV area:? I checked some old threads that says DBGB has good ones, but the current menu doesnt seem to have them. Le Jardin wasnt the best ever, but it was huge, and a cool spot, but it tragically closed. So where to now?

Not stuck on tradition, getting over a cold, so mostly just want a huge bowl of good broth.
EV area as in EV, LES, GV, SOHO, NOLITA, NOHO, you know, doesnt need to be in ev proper, but not looking to go to westchester...

Thanks A Lot.

  1. If you're willing to go to Chelsea-ish area, Flex Mussels opened up a location on 13th between 6th and 7th. The portions seemed a bit smaller than the UES location, but it was still tasty and a decent portion size.

    1. Go to La Sirene.

      1. Either Jane on Houston (and LaGuardia?) or Hundred Acres, around the corner on MacDougal between Houston and Prince.

        1. I second Flex.
          Petite Abeille- I believe one is on 20th and 1st. Check out their website because they have daily specials for all you can eat moules and a few locations, most in the village or surrounding areas.

          1. Sorry to hear DBGB isn't currently serving them...maybe call? Their moules frites are very good.
