There are three other Felice locations (including a wine bar next door), hence the “83.” They’re owned by the same people behind Sant Ambroeus, if that gives you an idea of what goes on here. Think good-looking space and solid food that’s probably a little more expensive than it should be. But if you’re taking someone out on the UES and you aren’t ready to sell the rights to your name for a meal at Daniel, Felice is an option. There’s also some outdoor seating in the summertime, which is perfect for when you want to monitor the traffic on First Avenue while you eat your pasta.
