Those are Some Big Mussels

Want mussel? Forget the gym! Head straight to Waterzooi belgian bistro in Garden City, Long Island. Many delicious meals find their way onto the menu at Waterzooi, but we suggest getting the moules et frites. Trust us - you'll feel like you've been transported back to Belgium!

The mussels come in small or large pots and, at around $24.00, the large is deep enough for two to share! Our favorite sauce is the Fra Diavlo but, if you're not into spicy or red sauces, choose anything from Creole to Oreganato. 

Feeling like more than just mussels? Add shrimp or fried calamari to any pot for an additional $8.00. 

Of course no meal of moules et frites would be complete without a good beer. Have no fear because Waterzooi has an extensive bier menu. We like Chimay wheat beer from the tap, but there's certainly no harm in having more than one drink - we hope you'll try them all! 

Think you're done with your meal? Think again. Don't leave before trying one of Waterzooi's homemade desserts. That's right - the tasty treats at this restaurant are all made on the premises. When you bite into them, you can tell! If you want to stick with the Belgian theme, have a Malted Brussels Waffle with gelato and whipped cream. Otherwise, try the Cheesecake Van Daag, Warm Belgian Chocolate Soufflé  , Peanut Butter Cup Sundae or Tahitian Vanilla Crème Brûlée   - it's all good!
