This new Italian spot on Abbot Kinney has been slammed since day one, serving locals who’ve been to every restaurant on the street multiple times. But it’s not just busy because people are excited about something new - Felix is doing some great things, especially with pasta. Don’t skip the pork meatballs to start, get a thin and chewy pizza to share, and then go to town on as many bowls of pasta as you can handle. It’s made fresh every day in a climate-controlled room that is also the centerpiece of the dining room. Yes, this sounds like a gimmick, but then you get to watch your spaghetti being made in front of you, and you wonder why all restaurants can’t be like this. And that’s before the excellent cacio e pepe even lands on your table.
