A gold mine for mussel lovers, this French-friendly spot offers six preparations to choose from, plus a variety of clam dishes, all at a modest price. Among the best are marinière (white wine, garlic, and parsley) and one combining coconut milk, lime juice, and chili. Add a side of the skinny fries and that's all most appetites need. The rest of the menu includes meaty dishes like lamb shank and New York strip to satisfy any unrepentant carnivores, but many of the presentations seem to be stuck in the last decade (same story with the lackluster desserts, complete with squeeze-bottle squiggles adorning the plates). The tables are clustered together in the lively dining room, so you might overhear neighboring conversations. Solo diners will find a bar where they can dine. On temperate days and nights, try for one of the tables outdoors.
