Feast made its name with chilled-to-grilled small plates (and there are still plenty of sharable bites) but recently took a turn to a more traditionally conceived and plated menu. Our waiter said Feast sees more of a neighborhood crowd these days (historic King William), and the offerings have been tweaked for that audience. An early Goodman & Bowers venue, the glam, glitter, and shine of both inside dining room and spacious outside patio are still on trend, while menu options remain global in scope with such offerings as hearty ancho chile–roasted pork and spicy hot-and-cool green harissa–spiked mussels. The standout for our meal was the dish with meatballs and mushrooms with a bit of bright dill pickle relish and fresh dill, fitting for the historically German neighborhood. Service is somewhat erratic, but the entertaining ambience—Lucite chairs, faux taxidermy, blue LED lights in motion—makes up for it.
