Feast obliterates famine with style

Ahi tuna from Feast

Multiple small plates add up to a full stomach. But dessert promised more tantalizing flavors. The menu will change seasonally at Feast, so I decided to ignore my bulging stomach on the chance that I might not get the chance to taste them again. The dense chocolate cake with cherry ice cream was pure comfort — warm and gooey. The tobacco bread pudding was perfect, but lacking in any tobacco smell or sharp nicotine taste. Not sure what the tobacco added to the dish, but the allusion to cigars seems to be more for shock value than flavor.

The décor and ambiance might put off some, but the final product here is worth braving even a dozen more plastic chandeliers and a mild volume bump. Feast has hat and cattle, flash and a bit of lightening, too. •
