You would have to like mussels or seafood. They had some very imaginative sauces for the mussels. We had veggies on the side ( for all to share) and we were stuffed from the mussels. we were impressed. haven't had fresh mussels like that in the San Francisco Bay area.

If you're a fan of Belgian style moules & frites you'll love this place. Pots of mussles prepared loads of ways and at a reasonable price (all under $25). Great micro-brew selection. We were steered towads the donuts for dessert but will try the deep fried whoopie pie next time. We can't wait to go back. A must if you're in Cheslea or the Union Square area. Not much esle beside s mussels and some fish (maybe there was one chicken dish) but thats the point!

I went with a friend for dinner on a Friday. Location is good in a quiet street and not far from the subway.

We sat by the bar with the friendly waiters working there. They let us taste a few wines before we chose what we wanted. The mussels menu is extensive and it was all really really tasty! we had some AMAZING desserts there as well and the bill was reasonable.

you MUST visit this place!

This place was recommended by a friend of mine as the place to go while we were in Manhattan. Boy was she right! We had a fabulous meal, the waitstaff was amazing, and the place had great atmosphere. Probably one of the best meals I have ever had!

Someone had mentioned Flex Mussels on the New York travel form here on TripAdvisor so my mother and I thought we'd check the place out while in New York last weekend.

We went to the 13th Street location. The decor is modern, the service was good and the food was excellent!

We skipped the starters but I ordered a strawberry cocktail and mum had a beer. It took a while to chose what main we wanted as there are so many delicious combinations, in the end I decided on The Copenhagen (Blue cheese, bacon lardons, spring onions and cream) and mum went with The Bisque (Lobster, tomato, brandy and cream). They were so delicious!! We're used to good mussels as we used to live in France where they are a bit of a staple and I was unsure if Flex Mussels would live up to what we've had previously but I'm very happy to report that they did - we both finished our very large pots.

Another reason for checking out Flex Mussels was because I'd read on here about the donuts, we were both absolutely stuffed but we were sure we'd find room somewhere. You get 4 donuts for $10 and we decided on the PBJ, Salted Caramel, Sugar & Cinnamon and Raspberry. If you don't like mussels its worth checking this place out for the donuts alone, they were fantastic!! Warm, fresh and with lots of filling. We managed one and a half each so they boxed the remaining 2 up for us and we enjoyed them the following day in our hotel room over a cup of tea.

Our hotel was very close to the 13th Street location but even if we were located elsewhere in the City I'd make a special journey to Flex Mussels - this speaks volumes :-)

2 Drinks, 2 mains, a side of truffle fries and dessert came to $97.00
