Eating at Naglee Park Garage SJC

I made a visit to the bay area to visit some friends, and we stopped by this place Naglee Park Garage.  This restaurant was featured on Guy Frieri’s Diners Drive Ins and Dives TV show.  They ordered the angus burger and baked salt cod for their main entree.  For my entree, I ordered the mussels with white wine.  We also ordered brussel sprouts and bacon and macaroni and cheese for sides.

I have to say the mussels were surprisingly fresh.  There was no fishy taste to it, and it wasn’t overcooked such that it was mushy.  The meat was pretty big and plump.  Typically this stuff has some type of broth to it.  The broth had a little garlic, onions, stock, and white wine.  It was also garnished with spinach on top as well as a few slices of bread.  I found the broth to be a little too watery and needed to be thickened a little.  It also didn’t taste like the mussels was stewed in the broth, so there really wasn’t much mussel flavor in it.  Despite the downfalls, it met my expectations since price and value seems to have placed it just right.  My friends have been to this restaurant before, and they said it was worse than they have remembered it.

In a nutshell, I think this place was ok, not terrible and not great.
