Mussels With Curry @ Ciro’s Cote Sud
Ciro’s is a good little French bistro, known as much for its pizza (a specialty inherited from the previous occupant of the building) as for its rustic French cookery. The mussels are a bit different from the standard, in being made with a light cream sauce flavored with a peppery curry seasoning. They also serve mussels with blue cheese in the sauce, but that’s not as good as this way.
