Mussel Man Tom Fitzmorris, Miley Eats at District, More

NOLA— This week T-Fitz brings you "the dozen restaurants where I have enjoyed eating mussels most" including Rue 127, Lilette, Toups' Meatery and more. His tip for ordering: "Never accept less than a dozen as an appetizer or less than two dozen for an entree. Four dozen sounds even better," as does a side of gout medication.
