So I just found out that Leo DiCaprio visited Felix last week just like I did. (He's in town to film a new movie called The Great Gatsby and has been spotted dining out at some of Sydney's fine eating spots) Well, I don't have a story to tell about DiCaprio because we weren't there at the same time and I didn't get to see him in person (not yet at least). What I did get, was one great tasting sandwich!
Reuben Sandwich with a Dill Pickle
I love Felix. While the food does not blow your mind, it is consistently good. What I love more is the slice of Paris that it brings to the Sydney dining scene. The dining room is one of the prettiest in this city and really gives the diner a sense of being in a French sidewalk bistro. I've been told that the restaurant is reminiscent of the famous Balthazar in NYC so if you've been there, you'll know what I'm talking about.
I know it's somewhat puzzling as to why a Reuben made its way onto a French bistro menu but hey, I can't complain when the sandwich is as good as this one at Felix. Some of the other memorable dishes that I've had were the Steak Tartare, the Gruyere Souffle and the Ocean Trout Terrine. Below are just some pictures during my first visit.
