Brasserie Felix just opened at 3901 Tennyson Street, and it's exactly what owners owners Danielle Diller and Gilles Fabre promised: a solidly 2/3 brasserie, offering two meals a day plus brunches on the weekends.

That's just the latest French place ot open. Over at 375 South Pearl Street, Café Etoile is doing the crepe thing, along with some sandwiches and snacks. At 85 South Union Boulevard in Lakewood, the Frenchy Press is offering breakfast, lunch and homemade pastries Monday through Friday.

And If you’re further afield and feeling Froggish, there's Le Petit Paris in Breckenridge (at 161 Adams Avenue). Operated by Arielle Coutouzis (late of Paris) and her husband (from the South of France), the bistro offers all the classics: soup a l’oignon, steak bavette, moules, profiteroles and even saucisse frites (hotdog and fries) for those uninterested in the assiette de saumon. The Coutouzis family did nine years in the restaurant industry in Manhattan before coming West; here’s hoping they can make a go of it in the mountains.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
