Best traditional mussels in NYC?

I'm visiting NYC in mid-January and have been craving mussels mariniere - white wine, garlic, etc. and was thinking about going to Les Halles but wanted to know if there was someplace that had really great mussels that I don't know about. I don't want to spend an arm and leg (more than $25 - even that is a bit much for an order of mussels) but am willing to if they're great. I'm mainly interested in staying in Manhattan.

Suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Manhattan mid January - dining alone?

I'm coming to NYC (Manhattan) in mid-January, staying in K-town. I'm coming alone and was wondering if I'll be 'weird' or something by eating alone at some 'nicer' restaurants. I'm thinking of going to someplace like Peter Luger's or Wolfgang's for a nice steak dinner. I don't always want to eat at a diner or more casual place but as a woman alone, I also don't want to stand out or whatever. Any suggestions as to where I might go for a great steak as a single diner? Thanks!
