Tucson Weekly’s Best of Tucson, September 2010
“Feast is one of Tucson’s most highly regarded restaurants, and the Feast catering team is more than happy to bring their talents and tasty food right to your front door. Perusing the catering menu may make you want to throw a party. Hell, the cold hors d’oeuvres alone—mini beef filet crostini; cheddar chive biscuits with ham, spinach and Dijon mustard aioli; mini risotto cakes; and so on—get the mouth watering. You can go tropical (banana bombs) or French (coq au vin) or Asian (soy- and sake-marinated flank steak). Desserts include bourbon pecan pie or individual warm strawberry shortcakes—and that’s only a small example of what the catering folks can prepare. They’ll make breakfast, lunch, dinner or anything in between.”

Arizona Highways, April 2008
“Top 25 Restaurants in Arizona- With a menu that rotates twice monthly, Levy creates eclectic offerings perfect for constructing a made-to-order meal. Try a parsnip salad paired with seared opah, served over rice with yellow vegetable curry salad and fried garlic. Or, get adventurous and taste any of Levy’s other clever creations. For an after-dinner treat, or while you’re waiting for your order, splurge on one of his homemade desserts, like a triple chocolate terrine or chocolate truffle cookies.”

Best Modern Cuisine
“At Feast, Doug Levy continues to dazzle with his new creations on a menu that changes every month to take advantage of the freshest ingredients available. Whether it’s a salad, a classic like beef Wellington or an inventive twist like corn pudding over grilled artichokes, red onion, kale and peppers from a local garden, Levy combines flavors like an alchemist to create a meal you’ll savor. Eat in the inviting dining room, or get well-packaged take-out for a fancy dinner at home; either way, you are indeed in for a feast.”
