Flex Mussels Gets a New Chef, Menu

We’re told that Flex Mussels executive chef Michael Bicocchi is out, and has been replaced by Michael Sullivan, who spent a decade as executive sous-chef at the late Chanterelle. Sullivan assumed his post for both locations last week, and in about another week he’ll unveil his additions to the menu. Look for creative seafood riffs such as falafel with lobster and Sriracha tahini, or salt-cod hash with fried eggs, plus some new mussel preparations. There’s also a lineup of “housemade specialties,” including pastas and mozzarella — the better to leave interlopers in the dust, we suppose. Menu below.
