A little slice of Europe has found its way into an alleyway right in the middle of Sydney CBD. Under the Merivale group banner Felix Bistro and Bar, designed as a romantic homage to the classy French brasserie, serves up a classic French inspired menu complete with a long list of French wines.
Paris. And the fact that I was just sitting down for dinner at 9.30pm and being served by friendly and helpful waiters in traditional long aprons reminded me even more of the time I've spent in the city of light.
|Felix Bloody Mary|
Ever since my Hawaii trip I have been on the hunt for a good Bloody Mary that could match the version created by RumFire in Waikiki, and almost a year later I think I have finally found one. This was THE best Bloody Mary I've had in Sydney so far. I went for the spicy version and got completely hooked on it after the first few sips, I could easily sit there and drink it all night long.
A complimentary basket of freshly sliced bread arrived soon after the Bloody Mary, and I have to say, it came with the softest creamy butter.
When it came to dessert time, it didn't take long for us to agree on the Bombe Alaska with lemon curd and berry compote. Sweet and sour, light and soft, perfect finish to a delicious meal.
With impressive walls of wine and a special dish for each day, Felix is definitely worthy checking out. I'm very tempted to head back for the Beef bourguignon, the Plats Du Jour for Thursdays, and their Bloody Mary of course.
Chefs Lauren Murdoch and Nathan Johnson have certainly done a great job with the menu, a well deserved One Hat from SMH's 2012 GFG.
