Group dining can be a hassle in New York City—just try scouring Opentable for a 'table for six in a few hours from now.' If you don't have a reservation, and don't want to go to Chinatown for a big table, you could find yourself with something of a hassle. Feast, with its communal tables, is designed for just such an outing, with service we found swift and attentive.
Feast recently started offering lunch which, unlike their dinner offerings, does not revolve around nose to tail group meals but rather a simple chalk board menu of a la cart items such as a pizza, salad, and what was described a steak sandwich. That description is a complete misnomer, but the sandwich is a good one.
