Houston Press' Description
Although its chefs â Richard Knight and James Silk â 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.
They call the food at Feast "rustic European fare," and there's nothing else like it in Houston.

They call the food at Feast "rustic European fare," and there's nothing else like it in Houston. Situated in a charming old house with a very relaxed and homey atmosphere, Brits Richard Knight (the chef) and James Silk (the butcher) are taking Houston tastebuds on a journey back in time, when people used to eat everything that a pig (and other animals) had to offer, from the snout to the tail to the blood, as in a typical black pudding a carnivore's orgasm. The adventurous menu at Feast changes daily, so just when you find the perfect dish, it vanishes. How about pork cheeks or bone marrow soup, or maybe chicken hearts on toast? No? Well, if you're holding out for the good stuff, you'll love the braised neck of lamb, the beef tongue or lamb tongues or the tongue and testicles in green sauce (not available every day). Both Richard and James have worked for some prestigious, Michelin-rated places and people, most notably under Fergus Henderson of St. Johns, in London, where James acquired the "whole hog" approach to his cuisine.
Tips from foursquare
Who's brave enough to base a restaurant on English food that doesn't rely on pub favorites? The owners of Feast and it's like nothing you'll ever experience. [Eater 38 Member]
Houston Press We Love Food - favorite Houston dishes - Pork rillette
must get pork belly and sticky toffee pudding
Go to Feast and order something you normally wouldn't. Go hungry!
Nice place with unusual food and atmosphere of a French rustic restaurant. Enjoyed the roasted eggplant soup and beef shoulder. Like their logo, reminds me of one of my favorite movies, Delicatessen.
