Not that there aren't other delights on the menu, but the mussels are the main attraction. The portions are hearty, but not to much for one person. You'll need extra bread for the broth. Gonna wanna soak up every bit of that liquid gold. The beer selection was pretty awesome. Some real palate-punchers. Pretty cool vibe, and right around the corner from a million after dinner booze dens.

Had a 6:00 pm reservation, It turned out to be the perfect time before they got very busy.
Service was excellent as well as the atmosphere and music.
I had Fried oysters, they were prepared perfect.
Fish and chips were very good as well but the mussels with different combinations were Excellent . You have to try the donuts as well.
]Very nice evening, I will; be back.
Please note by 8:00 pm it's crowded.

I really really like Flex Mussels. I chose this place after reading the reviews and discovered this is the best place for mussels in NYC. I was visiting my son after months apart and I know he loves shellfish so I decided to surprise him with a nice dinner. Yay! succeded.
We had the special of the night (chili pepper, lemon) and the parmesan mussels. They were both delicious but if you have to pick one, I would definitely recommend the parmesan cream. The taste is amazing.
We also ordered the fish n chips, but nothing special. Go for the mussels, really.
Service is great and the staff so friendly, specially the hostess.
Open one Flex Mussels in Sao Paulo, please!

Spare, crowded space with a good vibe. Approximately one million ways to prepare mussels, and really good bread to sop up the whatever you have them in. Hard to have a better meal. The appetizers were surprisingly good. Good bar scene later. Opentable.
