While Peterson jests about her "a-ha moment," Louisa Griffes directly identifies January's I Spy as Cafe Felix on Main Street. "The fleur-de-lis symbol (French for lily or iris) [is] on the awning over the entrance to [this] ... French Bistro," she writes. "It sits next to bd's Mongolian Grill ... hence, France borders Mongolia!" Felix fan Margaret Klauscher adds, "They've got awesome crepes!"
Cafe Felix started as a coffeehouse in 1997, adding tapas, wine, and entrees over the years in its transition to a European bistro. It is one of the many restaurants that participated in Restaurant Week during mid-January--an opportunity to try lunches and dinners with set pricing at various restaurants downtown. If you missed it, don't worry. Restaurant Week returns in June.
We received twenty-eight entries identifying Cafe Felix. Our randomly drawn winner, Tess Roth, is taking her gift certificate to the Saint Joseph Mercy Health System.
