Greek, Spanish or Italian? What kind of extra virgin olive oil do you prefer? No idea? Then go to Feast! and try them all while dipping chunks of French baguette. By the way, our favorite was the Greek one because of its fruity notes. Premium olive oils are only one piece of this trendy grocery’s large selection of deli treats. This specialty food shop is a temple for old school sampling, according to manager Gray Carson.
A real gourmet food store with gorgeous cheese and charcuterie and open aisles with more than 50 local and international artisan cheeses along with an assortment of charcuterie including Spanish Jamón Ibérico, Italian Prosciutto di Parma or French patés. Chocolates, selected local snacks, olives, and also a well-selected list of Virginian wines, ciders, and craft brews. Feast! is a place meant to buy special things.
They also offer assorted healthy sandwiches and daily soups. Fancy salads and bowls with quinoa, legumes and vinaigrettes are popular lunches for those eating on the fly at the few tables just outside. Patrons love the paninis too, like the tomato-mozzarella-basil or the chicken-cheddar-fig jam.
