Best Place for Mussels?

I am looking for suggestions on the best mussels you have had in Minneapolis or St. Paul. For this next weekend I am looking for somewhere over by the Lakes in Minneapolis, but in general anywhere across the metro would be good too as I love mussels!

  1. Barbette's mussels have been excellent in the past. I think that they're probably your best bet near the lakes. They serve them in a traditional wine sauce or with a coconut lime preparation.

    1. Cave Vin makes very good ones.

        +1 on Cave Vin's. Obsession-worthy. They're the best I've had since Figlio circa 1990.

      2. If you ever eat at Ngon and they are on the appetizer menu, order them.

          I have been there, but not had their mussels - will definitely give them a try next time as I love this place.

            Their app menu changes so they aren't always on there. I am quite sure you won't be disappointed.

        2. I would imagine Meritage should be in your investigation.

            +1 for Meritage. Best Moules Frites I've ever had.

          2. i like the mussels in white wine broth at 112 eatery. it's on the app menu but i've been known to make a meal of the dish, extra bread to sop up the broth, of course...
