Toast Happy Hour in Parisian Bar Felix

France by way of Upper King

Start the week off with a trip across the globe via Parisian-themed bar/small plates eatery Felix. Opening on Monday, November 20, at 4 p.m., the newest establishment to join Upper King offers plenty of wines, cocktails, beer, hors d’oeuvres, and “petits plats” to satisfy any Francophile.

Restaurateur Felix Landrum brought chef Nathan Thurston to help shape the food menu, and recently announced Elizabeth Schultenover as the executive chef. Schultenover, a Johnson & Wales grad, previously worked in Asheville, North Carolina, at Table and Cucina 24, as well as Knife & Fork in Spruce Pine, N.C.

Some early highlights from diners that attended the soft opening include a grassfed burger, steak frites with duck-fat-fried potatoes, a cognac milkshake, and the deviled eggs.

The bright and elegant restaurant is anchored by a rounded bar that can seat 18. Pops of colbalt blue make the 51-seat dining room come alive. Antique mirrors give the room old-world charm. Tour the entire space here before the doors unlock at 550 King St. Once open, Felix will run seven days a week, from 4 p.m. until “late.”
