The Daisy review image

The Daisy

The Daisy is the seatbelt of restaurants - it’s safe and overall pretty standard. You’ve likely tried most things on their menu at some point in life and said “yeah I like that food,” like salmon, mushroom risotto, and burrata. It’s usually easy to get a table here without waiting and they have outside seating on the sidewalk when the weather is nice.

Flex Mussels

Flex is a restaurant import from Prince Edward Island, which immediately gives it some credibility - "P.E.I" as they call it, is the source of some of the best mussels the world has to offer.
