Once again, Five Fish edges out the Shoe Shop for Best Mussels. These best bivalves beat the Shoe Shop’s by a shell. What’s the attraction? No one at the Fish is talking, but I’ll bet it’s got something to do with the fact that it’s all you can eat. And, let’s face it, while some places tart up the mussels with this sauce and that, plain old garlic butter a la Five Fish is the way to go.
Runner-up: Economy Shoe Shop, 1663 Argyle, 423-7463
