Best Mussels

Five Fishermen, 1740 Argyle, 422-4421

Year after year, Five Fish beats out the Shoe for Best Mussels. They come in a never-ending supply with any main course. “There’s a great debate,” says manager Gary MacDonald, “about whether mussels from NS or PEI are the best. We buy Nova Scotian whenever we can.” Lately chef Chris Burton has been cooking bivalves from Mahone Bay, serving them with your choice of four sauces.
