It's been about 3 years since they first opened, and over 18 months since our last visit. The menu has changed some over that period of time. There are fewer variations of Moules et Frites available, but having kept what is probably their most popular version on the main menu, and offering a changing combination on their bi-weekly specials menu allows the kitchen to continue to show their talent.
We started with a pint of Keegan Mother's Milk draft ($5) and a glass of Javier Sanz wine ($8) to go with the Flat Bread Appetizer ($9) on the Specials menu - Caribbean jerk spiced shrimp, warm mango salsa, and cilantro sour cream. The shrimp was perfectly cooked with just the right amount of jerk spice that allowed all the flavors of the dish to be enjoyed.
My wife ordered the Crepe Special ($18.50) - Roasted chicken, asparagus, Swiss cheese, tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, and their signature béchamel sauce. A very delicious combination of flavors, although the chicken was just the slightest bit, and I do me "slightest bit," dry.
I had the Mussel Special ($17.50) - Prince Edward Island mussels, sautéed onions, sugar snap peas, bell peppers, sweet and sour sauce, and fresh dill and of course, frites. As usual, I concentrated on some of the frites while they were nice and hot as I removed all the moules from their shells to bathe in the bowl of flavorful sauce. The frites are great when they are hot, but they are a little thinner than I prefer. Thus, they are more like shoe-string fries, very crispy on the outside with little room for soft potato texture on the inside. The mussels were perfectly cooked, nice and tender and clean. I had to ask for an addition piece of bread because there was so much broth left in the bowl that I didn't want to go to waste. As it was, I had already put some of my now cooled down fries, and the ones left over on my wife's plate, into the broth to try and soak up some of that delicious flavor after all the moules had been eaten.
We finished with a double Espresso ($2.75 + $1) which was large by espresso standards. Service was pleasant and prompt. I do feel obligated to point out that the prices on the web page for the entrees we ordered do not agree with our bill. Online prices were a dollar less for one dish and fifty cents less for another. Since the Specials menu changes every 2 weeks I would think that this would have been noticed. Overall, the food is really very good.
