After a long day on Ipanema Beach, hop into your hotel shower, put on a fresh shirt, and walk over for a bite to eat at Felice (formerly known as Felice Caffè.) It’s a classy, yet casual, place with a varied menu and a fine selection of fun, attractive, gay men. These aren’t muscle Marys or sauna boys, but young professionals who like to have fun. Felice is a few blocks away from the more popular Tô Nem Ai, but has better food and fewer tourists. In recent years, it has become popular with straights, so expect a mixed crowd.
As for the food, it would be difficult to not find something delightful on the menu. Salads, pastas, and grilled items are equally well prepared. Also, save room for dessert! You can browse every flavor of sorvete (ice cream) before deciding on the sweetest way to end your trip to Felice.
