My friend Natasha insisted we go to Flex Mussels for our next dinner date. When she told me it was on the Upper East Side (82nd & 3rd) I told her it better be worth the trip. For those of you who aren’t familiar with New York, I had to take an uptown subway and a crosstown bus (yes, I’m being dramatic). I can happily report, it was definitely worth the trip. I loved that it was a restaurant dedicated to mussels with flavors from around the world like Mexican, Thai, Indian, and Italian. We shared the Parma which had parmigiano cream, meyer lemon, scallions, toasted garlic and shallots. We also shared the truffle fries and oysters. I was constantly reminded by Natasha to leave room for the donuts for dessert. My-O-My these donuts were the highlight of the meal. This was a great neighborhood find in the Upper East Side.
