Happy New Year, y’all! I hope everyone had a fantastic time during the crossover to the 2010. I had the opportunity to visit Felicos on the last day of 2009. It was a small gathering my family and a couple of family friends. We did not know where to go until my mom brought it up during midday. Since I have not been there before (despite driving past it a million times), I thought “heck, why not?!”
The first thing I liked about the place was that it had sufficient parking in the back. It was a chilly, drizzling night and entering the ‘tavern’ was warm and welcoming. We made reservations and were quickly escorted to our seats. Being that the lighting is relative low in the restaurant, I only managed to take a picture of three separate entrees. We did, however, order some Bellini’s and Virgin Cocktails to start off but no appies.
My father ordered the Seafood Sautee. The sauce had a strong aroma which gave life to the rather ordinary selections of seafood and rice. The seafood ‘collection’ included some fish, scallops and crab meat. I think it was alright but probably would not order again.
I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures. It was pretty dim, Wendy wasn’t there and I had to use my dad’s iPhone. Anyways, my mother tried the Rack of Lamb. It had about 7 ‘racks’ of lamb served along with the usual asparagus, carrot and mashed potatoes (same as my dad and myself, btw). The lamb was roasted and had a nice seasoning cover the seared skin. It was done ‘medium-rare’, so it was very juicy and carried quite a bit of taste as I chewed through it (yes, I took some!). Great stuff!
I had the AAA Alberta Rib Eye Steak. It was made medium rare. I was very surprised as to how good it was. It was tender and juicy throughout except for the parts where there was a lot of fatty tissue where I don’t usually cut. It was a good 8oz and I was pretty stuffed by the end of it. One small complaint I had was that it was not as warm as I like it to be. Perhaps they left it out too long while waiting for the rest of the food to be ready. A good call, however, on ordering this.
All in all, a good visit just in time for 2010. I hope that all our readers will have a wonderful 2010!
