Brasserie Felix says au revoir

Husband-and-wife team Danielle Diller and Gilles Fabre opened Brasserie Felix three years ago on Tennyson, bringing neighborhood French bistro to an area that had supported mostly bars.

Today, the Berkeley neighborhood supports a raft of restaurants, everything from a new ice cream parlor to barbecue -- but Brasserie Felix is no longer one of them.

The message at the bistro's phone number says the restaurant is still open until July 31, which was the original plan. But on First Friday, it featured a half-off deal on its liquor stock, and that was so successful that the couple just went ahead and closed the doors, according to former executive chef Wade Gunn.

Gunn has other projects in the pipeline -- at one point, he was talking about opening a Brasserie Felix food truck -- but isn't ready to discuss them yet.

In the meantime, it's au revoir to Brasserie Felix...and don't believe that phone message.

I'm so bummed that Brasserie Felix has closed. What a loss to the neighborhood.


Very sorry to hear about this as BF was a charming spot with very good food. I can get BBQ, pizza and fancy beer all over Denver. Not so when it comes to the brasserie fare featured here. The independent restaurant implosion—inevitable—continues. Who's next?


So sad.I just moved to within 2 blocks of Brasserie Felix (one of our favorite restaurants).The mussels in Pernod-cream sauce were fabulous. Rich and flavorful best absorbed by the wonderful bread.
