Flexin’ Mussels at 9 Miles East

January 26, 2023

Oh, hello. It’s me again. Here to tell you to add a calendar alert to your phone every Thursday so you never miss a mussel night at 9 Miles East again.

Every Thursday, 9 Miles East at 64 Excelsior Ave., Saratoga Springs, NY, serves up Prince Edward Island mussels with your choice of Provencal tomato style or Thai green curry from 4 pm to 9 pm.

We had the Thai green curry style at our last visit, and I almost drank the remaining sauce it was THAT good. If you choose this option, be prepared for a little bit of heat from some fresh sliced jalapenos, but if you tolerate moderately spicy food, you shouldn’t have a problem.

The mussels were fresh, plump, and meaty, checking all the boxes. My only qualm was that I wish I had more bread to dunk, but that can easily be fixed with a simple ask!

This special is offered for dine-in and takeout every Thursday. If mussels aren’t your thing, they have plenty of other fantastic dishes, including a personal favorite: Barley Mushroom Risotto.

This risotto is rich and hearty, with umami from the mushrooms and creaminess from shaved parmesan that make this meal feel super indulgent.

Honestly, I could go on and on and on about different menu items at 9 Miles East, especially their pizza.

I’ve never had a meal here that I didn’t love, so hopefully, that says a lot. They also have options for EVERYONE, whether you’re a meat-lover, a vegetarian, or a vegan. Another huge plus.

So there’s my Thursday PSA – maybe I’ll see some of you there tonight for dinner!
