Feast BBQ Restaurant Review

: Feast occupies a handsome building that originally housed the Sunny Side Saloon, circa 1882. It’s among the 19th-century storefronts in downtown New Albany that line the riverfront facing Louisville across the Ohio River. A dark wood bar anchors the end wall where food and drink orders are taken. The saloon atmosphere remains, as bourbon is served in shot glasses and draft beer in pint Mason jars, but the barbecue and accompanying sides are among the finest in the region. Chopped chicken, pulled pork, baby-back ribs and beef brisket are marinated and smoked for hours. So the lean meat, served on its own or in sandwiches or tacos, is tender, moist and flavorful. Sides include tater tots, creamy slaw, collard greens or sweet potato fries. Check out the s’mores chocolate chess pie for dessert. Counter staff is always happy to advise on bourbon and beer selections. Also located at 909 E. Market St., Louisville, 502-749-9900.
