seasonal, farm-driven comfort food
“There’s a story for almost every single dish, and that goes back into where that product came from and how it got to your plate. We’re not just here to feed people.”
– Chef Michael Cherney
the peasants are the heroes…
Our focus is on community, which is the “peasants” part of the name, and celebration, which is “feast.” We refer to ourselves as peasants, and the farmers, ranchers, winemakers, fishermen—the agricultural community that supports us. The peasants are the heroes, and we want to show that to our customers.
“The ‘peasants’ part in our business name is our way of saying ‘community.’ We really value the people who do the work that brings the food to our kitchen, which then allows us to craft great meals. The ‘FEAST ’part is for my mom. She believed in the power of shared meals to bring people together. We want to create a space which celebrates that, and which offers delicious foods and welcoming experiences for everyone.”

Extraordinary meal. Kind and down to earth staff. Charming town, of course, and equally charming interior at this restaurant.

Great little spot! Food was incredibly fresh. The pickled vegetables were AMAZING! And I say that as someone that pickles her own veggies! The pastrami salmon was so fresh and melted in my mouth 11/10!

Let me tell you something, I’ve never lived until I came here... The spicy chicken and the smash burger were chefs kiss. Seasoned to perfection!
