Eat and Drink For a Cause At Feast NYC
The latest Asian-influenced menu at Feast in the East Village is quite the winning effort. Arancini balls are reimagined with ‘fried rice’ and tangy onion remoulade. Brussel sprouts are tossed with mouth-watering lap chang sausage. Their homemade pasta dish with lobster, chili oil, and ginger scallion butter sauce will have you coming back for more. But there is more to Feast than just great décor, wonderful food, and amazing cocktails.
Feast will now be introducing #Chartiki Tuesdays. Basically, every Tuesday, the restaurant will be turned into a Tiki-themed venue, tiki cocktail menu included. 30% of proceeds from cocktails will go toward a different charity for the week, month, etc. Last night’s featured charity was Restore NYC, which rescues sex trafficked victims. Their chosen charity really struck a cord with me.
With the recent political climate, I spoke with an immigrant who is a Trump supporter. I got incredibly angry and upset. I most likely yelled because I got so angry. I don’t like yelling during arguments, but what they said to me was just devastating in my eyes. This person told me that immigrant females who are being sex trafficked knew what they were getting into and chose to be prostitutes. Needless to say, unless you agree with them, you can probably see why I was so upset. It was very important to me to show up at Feast last night for such a worthy cause. I look forward to attending more #Chartiki events in the future.
Anyway, back to the food shall we? I’ve had dinner there before, but the lighting was much better for brunch, so here are some of the tasty brunch dishes I noshed on recently.
Bakery basket, yogurt parfait, and juice shot.
Beijing Benedict: Scallion pancake, duck confit, and hoisin hollandaise.
Steak and eggs: Steak, crispy poached egg, and chimichurri.
BTW, I have to focus on work now so can’t write more, but I have to say, the décor is so nice there. If you don’t have time to eat, just stop by for a drink to relax and enjoy the scenery.
Also, their homemade bread that they serve for dinner is so freaking good. Good enough that I ask to bring some home so that my family can munch on it throughout the week.
