As restaurants slowly continue to occupy lower Manhattan, here's one with a pre-2008 sheen to it: Felice 15, the city's third outpost of UES-based Tuscan place Felice. Set to open Wednesday at Gild Hall, the spot has a number of banker-friendly features, including a 45-minute prix fixe express lunch and an upstairs wine lounge, La Soffita, with an aperitivo menu geared toward after-work drinks. See the glamorous space designed by Robert McKinley (GoldBar, Surf Lodge) in our slideshow, and scope menus below.
Felice 15, 15 Gold St., at Platt St.; 212-785-5950
