French Food in NW Denver

Friday night JB & I went to Brasserie Felix on Tennyson. We were surprised to get seated right away on a First Friday but based on our experience, I am certain reservations will soon be needed. (Early on we were able to walk right in at Duo too.)

We had an enjoyable meal. JB had a special salad with local heirlooms. The goat cheese free bite he shared with me was divine. I started with the french onion soup which had too much cheese for my taste but otherwise was solid. We both enjoyed seafood entrees (Sea scallops and shrimp over asparagus risotto with a lobster bisque sauce and mixed seafood, mussels, cockles, calamari, shrimp, garlic, parsley, lemon butter broth) but the menu is packed with carnivore options. We rounded out our meal with Crepe Suzette which would have been much better if we had not recalled the dulce de leche stuffed crepes from Centro.

The reason I know we will be back is that our most favorite waiter in Denver was wrapping up his training there. We have been fans of this sarcastic yet service oriented guy since we first crossed paths with him at DJs and then Mead St and now Felix. And if he leaves in a year for another spot in the hood- I am sure we will start to frequent that spot too.

Another note: Felix has recently added bottomless mimosas to the Sunday brunch (about the same time that Gelmans removed this from their menu.)

Whew, I was worried that it would be all hype and no delivery on the great menu posted in the window and very french bistro decor!

This means that the PD and I will be taking my mom to Felix on Sunday for the first "meet the folks" date.......
