Went to the Bier Abbey in Schenectady for dinner. Service was good, beers were tasty.
Got mussels. The menu lists them as $12 for 2 lbs. No way were these 2 lbs, though. The bowl was very shallow, so what you see is what I got. 1 lb of mussels at the Merry Monk is more than 2 lb of mussels at the Bier Abbey.
Mariner sauce (white wine & garlic) was good, but the mussels were also overcooked and shriveled up in the shell. Wonder if they were sitting in the kitchen for a while before the server brought them out? Any way, went with a group of friends for a birthday, and they weren’t inedible, but man. Since when is that 2 lbs?
At any rate, I’ll skip on the seafood. Chicken nuggets/strips looked much better. Merry Monk for mussels in the future.
