D. Vino pumps up with a special mussels menu

With all these options, who needs clams?

Mussels generally don’t share in the shellfish love lavished on oysters, shrimp and clams. Not the case at Monte Carlo Italian spot D. Vino, where chef Martin Garcia is once again making it rain with a Mussel Fest menu available through February 5.

Steamed Prince Edward Island mussels in spicy tomato broth with garlic crostini ($12) are always on the menu, but that’s only the beginning. For a limited time, several creative takes on traditional dishes ($12-$17) highlight the slightly brinier bivalves, including: Italian style with San Marzano tomatoes, basil, white wine and Calabrian peppers over linguine; Neapolitan style with garlic, onion, roma tomatoes, Trebbiano wine, lemon and red pepper; mussels with spicy sausage and fennel in a white wine-tomato broth; and baked stuffed mussels with anchovy, capers, Parmesan and panko breadcrumbs. With all these options, who needs clams?

D.Vino Monte Carlo, 702-730-7966. Sunday-Thursday, 4-10:30 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 4-11 p.m.
