Felix is an earnest love letter to the Paris brasserie. There's a devotedly authentic mood from the open kitchen, with bright copper saucepans to the real Parisian subway tiles on the walls. A glance at Nathan Johnson's menu proves you're in for a confidently classic evening, too, from smooth chicken liver pâté and soufflé for starters to meaty main courses such as grilled pork neck and belly with cider apples and mustard. Felix is less about pushing boundaries and more about paying homage, and the simplicity is seductive. Fruits de mer come on a shimmering bed of ice, scantily clad in sharp vinaigrette, while the herb gnocchi pulls no punches with a powerful pesto. Traditionalists should go no further than the steak with hand-cut frites and pungent butter sauce. The delicate balance of peach and nectarine gratin is a soothing way to finish. Swooning out the door, it's almost a shame to find we're still in Sydney.
