I've been anxiously awaiting comments on the food at this new wine bar on First Avenue & 64th Street, but so far nothing has been posted of any consequence. This post is no different, but I did try to have dinner there last night with a friend.
The place was absolutely packed without a single spot to even have a glass of wine at the small bar. The gracious host said that there would be a 45 minute wait for a table, but did show us the menu upon request. Entre prices on the high side - $27 for a salmon dish, I think, but the funny thing was: we didn't see anyone actually eating...just drinking wine. It seemed that every table had those stemless wine glasses and plenty of red wine, but no food.
Well, we didn't wait the 45 minutes, opting instead to share a pizza at Johns around the corner. Maybe someone who has actually eaten at Felice will provide a comment? By the way, the pizza at Johns was excellent as always...and they were packed too. Maybe the result of Felice overflow?
