Arizona Restaurant Week: Feast

After last night’s disappointing meal, we were hoping that Feast wouldn’t let us down, and they didn’t.  This cute little restaurant is located in midtown Tucson near Gee’s Garden and Korean House.  
4122 E Speedway Blvd
Tucson, AZ 85712-4522

Since they don’t take reservations, J and I went early at 5pm so that we wouldn’t be left waiting for a table, especially unappealing after we’ve fasted all day.  The restaurant week deal at Feast was $29 for appetizer, entree, dessert, and a glass of wine they pair with the particular entree you order.

Cambozola Souffle with red wine, dried cherry reduction and walnuts: excellent pairing.  The sweetness of the cherry balanced the saltiness of the cambozola.
Taste 9/10

J had the Napoleon of phyllo squares with goat cheese mascarpone, grilled peaches and wild boar bacon: “wholesome yumminess” per J.
Taste: 9/10
Seared Alaskan halibut in oyster-scented broth, over pea shoot risotto and sugar snap peas, garnished with tobiko caviar: the halibut was light, risotto buttery, peas crisp, but the caviar unfortunately didn’t add much to the dish.  The wine pairing was perfect, though I really don’t remember what it was.
Taste 8/10

J had the special which was pork stew with plantains and bean rice: pork was a little tough, plantains hard, but the stew was flavorful.
Taste: 7/10

Verrine of rice pudding, golden raisins, pistachio custard, fresh raspberries and cookie crisp: fresh tasting, especially loved the pistachio custard and golden raisin.
Taste: 9/10

White chocolate raspberry bread pudding with creme Anglaise: J said it actually tasted like bread pudding, unlike the bread pudding he had last night at Bob’s.
Taste: 8/10

We will definitely go back, and would safely say that this is the best restaurant we’ve tried in Tucson so far.  Overall would give it 8-9/10.  J’s actually talking about going back the end of this week, but I really can’t think that far ahead.
