I read a nice review of Plouf a few threads down below. I love Plouf and especially crave their mussels. However, I remember reading in Anthony Bourdain's first book how one his his main rules for dining out was "never order mussels." I think he felt they were generally stored unsafely by restaurants. since reading that, I haven't felt comfortable enjoying mussels. I figured Bourdain MUST know what he's talking about as a chef.
What are your respective opinions when it comes to ordering mussels in a place like Plouf? Safe? Unsafe? Somewhere in between. Love to hear your thoughts.
