Mussels Frites, known in France and Belgium as Moules Frites, is a classic coastal dish, especially on the Northern Coast of France. Vintage’s mussels are steamed with white wine, melted garlic and leeks, and finished with fresh herbs. And these simple, fresh ingredients are all that is needed for the French dish to shine—particularly seafood. And, of course, fresh Pomme Frites is a delicious side, as the salt in the fries compliments the sweetness of the mussels and the wine. This Vail Village restaurant sources its mussels from a small, sustainable farm on Bang’s Island, Maine, as owner, Brodie Broderick finds these black mussels to be much meatier and more flavorful than the ubiquitous Prince Edward Island mussels.
