My family was visiting from Maine and we all fell in love with the mussels in red sauce at Ziba’s Restaurant & Wine Bar in Grant Park. My sister can harvest mussels from beds which are right down the road from her home. She wants to surprise the family with this great dish. Thank you. — Bill Stanhope, Decatur
Marcie Meirndorf, owner of Ziba’s Bistro, says mussels have been a staple of the menu since the restaurant opened. “Not a lot of places serve mussels, and our guests really like them. We offer them with 20 different sauces and the red sauce, or marinara is definitely a favorite.” Indeed you can order mussels with white wine, mussels cooked with beer, bacon, garlic and thyme, mussels cooked with coconut milk and lemongrass or over a dozen more variations. All are served with a toasted baguette and French fries.
