I personally love Felice - I had vegetarian lasagna with a poached egg on top and it was great. Bread is the last thing on my mind when I'm trying a new restaurant so I don't really care about it - I think that people have just gotten used to freebies at restaurants in the U.S.
Actually, Greenhouse DOES offer free bread. There is an additional bread that's kinda like an upgrade that is an additional cost but veeryone does get bread with a pretty tasty spread.
On the rocks is a term to a bartender for an increase pour of liquor. I bartend in the city, and this is done in all lounges, bars and restaurants.
your reader needs to take his or her training wheels off before going to dinner. Also, the new restaurant(the greenhouse on east 4th) charges for bread. Please, does anybody understand economics?
We had a very good meal in very pleasant surroundings. Excellent unusual appetizers. The Spanish chicken thighs has a crisp skin and moist interior and excellently spiced. My wife enjoyed the more traditional bbq ribs. Reasonably priced. Nice wine choices.
i really liked felice i thought the food was excellent and presented beautifully.. and the comment i read earlier about the rocks charge, the $2.50 is because when you order a drink on the rocks it is all liquor, no wash, hence a higher price tag. i would definitely recommend this place
Hi - can't speak to the drink but I totally agree with you on the bread. In fact, I mentioned that in my write-up. I couldn't believe I didn't get any bread to soak up the sauce of the mussels - that's just not right. But while I don't think Felice offers the best food in town, we did enjoy what we had and really loved the atmosphere.
WE did not love this place. We would not return. The protions were very small. There is a $2.50 charge for a drink on the rocks. Rocks $2.50 give me a break a bag of ice is not even that high. And if you want bread its $1.50 for regular or $3.00 we were told for special. If the food and charges don't improve this place will not make it.
