1PD: Chef Garreth Dickey’s Acadian Mussels With Chorizo Will Make Your Spine Tingle
They arrive in a shallow bowl, a dozen or so per order, lounging around like sorority sisters in a backyard pool. These are happy mussels. Spoon up the garlicky soup, a chunk of sweet tomato, a swirl of basil rouille, and, best of all, a knob of the smokey Spanish chorizo. Tear off a corner of crusty French bread then plunge it knee-deep into Mussel Lake. When the loaf is soaked like a sponge, cannonball it into your mouth. Chef Garreth Dickey’s Acadian mussels at Dish may not make your spine tingle quite like pledge week, but your spine will definitely tingle. These are the best $12 mussels you will ever eat. Ever.
