Mussels and Fries with Mustard Mayonnaise

['1 (15- to 16-ounce) package frozen french fries', '1 small onion', '2 garlic cloves, forced through a press', '3 tablespoons unsalted butter', '2 teaspoons dry mustard', '2 teaspoons water', '1/2 cup mayonnaise', '1 cup dry white wine', '2 pounds cultivated mussels, rinsed', '2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley', 'Equipment: an adjustable-blade slicer', 'Accompaniment: crusty bread (preferably a baguette)']

Cook french fries according to package instructions and keep warm in oven if necessary.
Meanwhile, cut onion into very thin slices with slicer, then cook with garlic and a pinch of salt in butter in a wide heavy medium pot over medium-high heat, covered, stirring occasionally, until pale golden.
While onion cooks, whisk together mustard and water until smooth, then whisk in mayonnaise and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Add wine to onion and briskly simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until onion is almost tender, about 5 minutes. Add mussels and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until mussels just open wide, 4 to 6 minutes, checking frequently after 4 minutes and transferring as cooked to a bowl. (Discard any mussels that remain unopened.) Stir parsley into cooking liquid and season with salt. Pour liquid over mussels, then serve with fries and mustard mayonnaise.
