Excellent review of Feast BBQ at WFPL.

Dana McMahan is a veteran Louisville foodie and writer, so this isn't your average Yelp screed in crayon. When it appeared on Facebook yesterday, one of the first "shares" was by Rick Adams, chef at the adjacent, newly relocated Exchange, which tells you something quite positive about the emerging food and drink community in New Albany. We're in it together.

REVIEW: Feast BBQ a Candidate for Last, Great Meal (WFPL radio)

 ... Our hefty platters arrived soon. Brisket, chicken, pulled pork, smoked tofu, sweet potato fries, mac and cheese, baked beans, collard greens—dish after dish. I tore into my plate with full intentions of finishing all of my dishes and tasting everything. And it was a valiant attempt. “I am impressed,” my husband said in reverent tones as I plowed through the spread.

The food was so very, very good that it didn’t take any particular skill on the part of this professional eater to polish off a significant portion. The creamy, peppery mac and cheese led perfectly to the crunchy cole slaw, which was the perfect segue to the savory, succulent pulled pork, followed by the surprisingly complex tofu and capped off with the perfectly crispy, sweet and savory sweet potato fries.
