Feast Restaurant Review

: There are likely to be no indifferent responses to the décor at Feast, situated in the King William/Southtown corridor that is South Alamo Street: it’s all bright white walls, clear plastic chairs, crystalline light fixtures --- and loud. This is a hard look to pull off successfully, and though it doesn’t quite work here, the contrast between Feast and the historic neighborhood it sits in is admittedly invigorating. Served largely in small-plate format, the food, for its part, is anything but monochrome, borrowing influences from the Eastern Mediterranean, Mexico and modern menus everywhere. Barbacoa, a local classic, is served in lettuce wraps and is a standout; fried calamari redefine the knee-jerk genre; grilled lamb breast may appear in several guises. A chermoula-like mantle and savory broad beans rescued a chicken breast from mediocrity. But only baby Brussels sprouts in a dressing too close to honey mustard truly disappointed. Inventive cocktails should be sampled; the abbreviated wine list is nevertheless thoughtful and fairly priced.
