I had greek style and my wife had fra diavolo and they were both great. Plenty of medium size mussels and plenty of great bread to sop up any left over sauce. Delicious!

What You'll Get

The phrase “coming out of your shell” traces its origins to tightly sealed mussels, clams, and other mollusks whose fear of being co-opted as castanets was mistaken for shyness. Crack into some shells with today’s Groupon to The Mussel Pot. The Mussel Pot requires advanced reservations by phone. Choose between the following options:

  • For $29, you get dinner for two (up to a $64 total value) that includes:
  • Two pots of mussels (up to a $24 value each)
  • Choice of two side dishes or two glasses of wine or beer (up to an $8 value each)<p>
  • For $37, you get dinner for two (up to an $76 total value) that includes:
  • Two pots of mussels (up to a $24 value each)
  • Two side dishes (up to an $6 value each)
  • Two glasses of wine or beer (up to a $8 value each)

The Mussel Pot stamps palate passports for an international seafood voyage, simmering mussels in 18 flavorful stews infused with aromas of down-home Louisiana seasonings, Provençal French herbs, and the spice of southern Mexico’s Oaxaca. Half culinary map, half raw material for ordering via paper airplane, the menu prompts decisions on which exotic locale to dip tongues’ toes in, with options including the lobster-cheese-fondue based Chef’s Best, and the bouillabaisse, which combines clams, shrimp and scallops. The elegant banquette tables and custom chandeliers of the dining room may spur the spicy pepper and garlic of the Italian fra diavolo or the saffron sauce, chorizo, and seafood medley of the Spanish valencia. With a cascading waterfall that splashes into a koi pond, the outdoor garden nurtures a dining oasis suggestive of an equally lush potted portion of beer-bubbled Texas-style mussels with pulled pork.

Between prying meat off mollusks and using their shells as poker chips, bite into a hearty side such as hand-cut french fries, grilled asparagus, or Israeli couscous salad. Diners can also complement their meals with sips from The Mussel Pot’s extensive beer and wine menus.

About The Mussel Pot

The Mussel Pot's warm dining-room color scheme evokes aromatic foodstuffs with a palette of cream, cocoa, and rich brown shades that whet diners' appetites for the feast ahead. Owners and twins Alex and Leo Baskin designed the eatery as an ode to seafood that would offer lobster, oysters, and the house-signature mussels in their traditional incarnations alongside more daring, comfort-fare-inspired preparations. Executive chef Ronnie Esposito, formerly of NYY Steak, crafts nearly two dozen dishes showcasing the eponymous mussels alongside other seafood selections. Aromatic cauldrons of bite-size mussels simmer in traditional broths and sumptuous sauces, highlighting flavor profiles borrowed from cultures around the world. A fresh lemongrass-and-curry broth recalls Thai cuisine, and spiced Cajun smoke channels Louisiana in a deliciously jumbled gumbo of andouille sausage and crawfish.
