Felix was my local hangout for about a year, as I was literally living half a block away. While the restaurant is always buzzing, the atmosphere always feels very laid back.
During the summer the French style doors open, giving a cool breeze from the streets. Felix is located on West Broadway between Broome and Grand streets. The view is great and there is less foot traffic here so it really does feel like a hidden gem.
Stop by for a glass of champagne or splurge on a romantic dinner. Expect to see somewhat of a party if you dine there for their weekend brunch or late night on Friday or Saturday.
To get there, take the A,C,E to Canal Street. Felix is located at 340 West Broadway.
