In preparation for stuffing our guests with beautiful food, we’re stuffing our walls with beautiful insulation. Oh, how cozy we’ll all be- toasty warm in the winter and cool in the summer, except for the part where we have four ovens, a steamer, a fryer, two char-broilers, two griddles, eighteen burners and the heat from […]
Our friends, the masons, are back. Now they’re working on an enclosure for our trash and recycling. I know you thought we didn’t produce any trash, but truly, every restaurant does. Still, while the footprint of our restaurant is large, our carbon footprint will be as small as we can keep it. As it is, […]
Yesterday, for your protection, our friends spent the day putting in seemingly endless lengths of pipe to shower you with water in the event of a fire. Not that we intend to set anything on fire, but if the restaurant does go up in flames, our guests won’t. There are sprinklers to beat the band. […]
It only just now occurred to me that all these photos probably haven’t coalesced into a big mental picture for you yet. So here we are: this is what Feast will look like from above. On your lower left, you’ll see the private dining room. There’ll be a projector and a screen, a place to […]
My grandmother was an English teacher, so a little pinch happens in my brain when I see people misuse quotation marks or apostrophes. Such a pinch occurred the other day when I saw this sign. Never mind the “Winter Hours” heading in July. It’s winter somewhere, after all. The part that made me wince was […]
We haven’t been allowed in the building for the past two days because the hot tar’s been flying. As someone who’s worked in hot kitchens for over 25 years, I’d have to say that I still prefer it to the idea of spending a Tucson July first on a roof with a bubbling cauldron of […]
It’s looking pretty sharp over at the new location. The exterior framing’s done and our plumber friends have begun moving things along inside. Last week’s progress appeared dramatic, but mostly because it’s so visible from the street. This week, all the progress will happen either in the great indoors, or in the great back yard. […]
Yes, you can see the Bashful Bandit from the private dining room. We’ve met our new neighbors, and I must say, they’re already off on a way better foot with us than the people in the Scottsdale office of Discount Tire. But there’s something very special about this photo. You may notice something you’ve not […]
I feel sorry for the masons, because up to this point, no one has really even mentioned the building, aside from calling it a construction site, but after only a few days of carpentry, Feast is starting to take on the appearance of a builidng. Here are a couple of snap shots.
We have a new friend by the name of Hektic. We know he (or she, but I’m betting on he) likes Feast, because he stopped by to pay us a visit and left us an autograph.
