Amazing mussels. Between the four of us, we tried all of the mussel options except the curry. All were fantastic. Really interesting brunch menu. This was a surprise find as we were leaving the MOMA. Love the $25 all you can drink option!

It's nice to see a restaurant that specializes in a certain food does it right! The mussels were fresh and packed with taste (I tried three types) and they all please my palate. Order the truffle fries and a beer and your set.

Flex Mussels is our go-to spot when visiting New York City. Mussels are delicious as is the crab guacamole and fish tacos. Great Happy Hour...their Spicy Margarita is to-die-for!
