Feast - Closed

219 Westheimer Houston, TX 77006 | Montrose | 713-529-7788

Location Description:

Although its chefs — Richard Knight and James Silk — are well-known for cooking the kind of nose-to-tail British cuisine they learned under Fergus Henderson, there are actually far more dishes on Feast's menu than pork heart tartare, lamb tongue and beef sweetbreads (although those are all reliably excellent options). Vegetarians will take comfort in a dish of roasted portobello mushrooms with braised lentils and goat cheese, while pescatarians will enjoy a pan-fried filet of Gulf tuna. The wine and beer lists are short but stellar, and cocktails are well-made. Dessert is also a must here, with sticky toffee pudding standing out as the best in town.
