A mussel & a barnacle

katalina | Jan 18, 2008 07:20 AM

Last night I went to Florent in NYC and ordered mussels. When they came out I noticed a few had barnacles on them, something I have never seen on a mussel in a restaurant before. I have seen barnacles on mussels in a tide pool or on a dock... but not in a garlic and white wine sauce on a plate.

Would you eat a mussel with a barnacle on it? Does anyone know if that is a sign they are a)old or b)dangerous?
