What started as a simple moules-frites joint and cozy cocktail bar has expanded its offerings to match wits with St. Jack, La Moule's upscale westside sibling. Split some mussels ($21) and a killer bacon-brie burger ($15) and close out dinner with a cinnamon-sugar-dredged "churro" waffle ($7) with dulce de leche squiggled on top.
