We found this little gem in the 500 Hidden Gems of New York (book)...No wonder it is hidden cos the directions in the book are wrong! It's on 13th between 6th and 7th (not 5th and 6th). If you like oysters and mussels, this is...More

This hidden gem in the west village is absolutely delicious!! Went on a date here we tried the jalapeño clam strips (crispy and delicious) and the oysters were very fresh. As far as mussels go, there are tons of options and the staff can tell...More

Restaurant is centered on mussels prepared in about 20 styles. Fresh and scrumptious; not too large or overly chewy. Very sweet. Donuts for dessert a true treat as well as the truffle oil parmesan fries.

Super nice staff and absolutely delicious mussels, unsure what more to ask for! Wine selection is strong and affordable, and dessert was surprisingly good!

We dined here on a Friday evening. Service was great and pretty fast too, even though the place was full. Mussels were great too, definitely worth a visit!

We picked this Flex location to meet after work since it was a mid point. I'd never been but my friend visited previously and suggested it. I selected a cocktail at the bar while I waited (bad choice). After we were seated I ended up...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
