Mua review: Music, eclectic decor match the food by Nicholas Boer
Sitting at the end of a bar (there are three) alongside a bronze bust with a female mannequin’s leg coming out of its head, it occurs to me that Mua may have never felt so serene. On this rainy Thursday afternoon, this former nightclub, now a full-service restaurant, is clocking in at 65 decibels. It was cracking into the 90s when I checked my sound meter the previous Friday evening.
We had been encouraged by our dinner waitress – wearing a “Misfits” T-shirt – to come in for the green bean sandwich ($10). She feigned ecstasy recalling its ingredients. We’re digging the well-crusted, but still light fried calamari and hot peppers ($8) as well as a squishy-crunchy po’ boy stuffed with soft-shell crab and coleslaw ($12).
