Don't let the casual location in Rice Village fool you: Felix 55 is an upscale eatery at its heart, with price points to match. The cocktail bar, with its "from scratch" cocktails, is the most casual thing about Felix 55, which transitions into a very adult, very elegant dining room in muted tones of taupe and gray. Dishes are similarly restrained, but with a punch of cheekiness: mesquite-smoked duck with couscous and fig mostarda or a chicken-and-waffles dish with pan gravy and harvest beans. Brunch is remarkably well-priced, however, and includes an excellent cocktail selection.
