Sometimes we just don’t love enough.
In the case of Feast, that incredible haven of all things offal — the restaurant that truly believes in tail-to-snout cuisine and truly despises industrial farming, the fabulous eatery hailed by Frank Bruni and the East Coast press — has never really gotten the local love it deserves.
So it’s headed to New Orleans.
But wait, in fear of never noshing on Welsh rarebit again, co-owner and chef Richard Knight assures they won’t abandon Houston.
“No, no, we will still be here,” he assures. “It’s just that we think New Orleans will be more open to our kind of cooking.”
He and partners James and Meagan Silk have secured the old True Brew spot at 200 Julia St. in the Warehouse District of NOLA and plan to switch back and forth between the two cities once the second locale opens in late August or early September.
“We’re pretty interchangeable,” Knight says. “One of us will always be on site at one of the restaurants to interact with our guests. We aren’t going to abandon Houston, we have a lot of loyal fans here.”
Whew, and so our culinary scene dodges a bullet, but it’s a reminder that Houston foodies need to show some love to this incredible eatery.
