Bottomless Mimosa Guide: St. Felix


FinerThings LA

2014: Can anyone confirm if this deal is still offered?

We have been trying to track down the details on the St. Felix Bottomless Mimosa Brunch for what seems like forever. Obviously our efforts were of the laziest variety: checking their website, sending twitter messages, scanning Facebook. All futile efforts for the past couple months.
