I know a lot of people say they don’t win anything… but I mean it. Until this year. I’ve been lucky in little drawings, winning dinners from FoodBuzz, and then with signing up for Circle of Taste with The Time Warner Center. The first thing I won (yes… even more than one!) was a Mussel and Beer tasting at Landmarc. The discription was completely vague so we had no idea what we were in for.
Our tasting was to begin promptly at 9 and we were sat at a very low table with other winners. The menu looked good. We could choose two mussel preparations and two beers from their list.
We could choose from light or dark beer from St. Bernadus. I chose light, Mike chose dark. Mine was good…
But Mike’s was GREAT. Full, wonderful flavor. One of the best beers I’ve ever had.
We assumed we’d get a bite or two of each mussel preparation, however, they gave us HUGE tereens. Each were a meal in itself but we got two. And they were heavenly…
And they came with (delicious) frites!
And then… DESSERT!
This meal was SO good even if we paid for it. Next time I know of someone that loves mussles, this is where I’m taking them. We also got phenomenol service throughout and I was very impressed. Their bar is very nice too. If you need somewhere to bring a date… I think this place would be a total winner.
