MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Presenting a focused menu of cleverly made, high-quality seafood, it’s no surprise that this haven is still going strong. Inside, the setting is routinely packed to the gills, both up front where there is a bar and counter, as well as in the back dining room, adorned with an abundance of maritime-themed artwork. Expect to taste plenty of the namesake bivalve, hailing from Prince Edward Island. Priced by the pound and steamed in no fewer than twenty globally inspired broths, they are best when paired with killer hand-cut skinny fries. Mussels No. 23 refers to the daily special, which features these mollusks in a fragrant bath of white wine, tomatillo salsa and spicy jalapeño. When coupled with shrimp and calamari, this does indeed make for a sweet treat.
