After a few hours exploring SoHo we looked for a bar to put up our feet and have a dinkie. Passing Felix for the second time we remarked again how lovely it looked with its French windows open wide and the white linen tables flapping in the summer breeze. Probably too good just for a drink, but we asked and they said yes. We even got a window table. My partner had a cocktail, I had a glass of what turned out to be a really nice Sauvignon blanc. We lazily sat there thinking "Life is good" - too good to leave it seems, for we were soon ordering more drinks. This time I switched to a Sancerre (I know, I know; I shouldn't but I did. And it was excellent). Yes, service was a little "amateurish", but that was because the staff were over-anxious to be helpful. Definitely a fault in the right direction and one that many restaurants could copy with benefit to all.
The decor was spot-on. Wall hangings, great old mirror, terrazzo flooring, all conspired to give one the feeling of a real French bistro. No frills or fancies but just the right atmosphere. We were so taken with the place that we decided to stay on and have something light to eat. My other half had the Salade de chèvre chaud, which he was very happy with. I went for the Pâté de campagne. This was the real thing! A little on the rough side, as it should be. With it a glass of a humble Vin de pays from Hérault (Grenache, Syrah, Tempranillo) which was a winner. All reasonably priced. This place is definitely on our list for our next visit to NY.
