If you're not quite ready to dine out, or just want to make life a little simpler by having meal kits ready in your refrigerator, Feast Local is one click away. Rather than baking seven chicken breasts with brown rice to prep for a week's worth of eating, Feast Local has rallied local restaurants to prepare meals that can be delivered to your front door and reheated at home. Blessed for avoiding bland bites.
Feast Local was founded by The Feinstein Group, run by husband-and-wife team Zachary and Christina Feinstein.
"Feast Local was established during the 2020 pandemic of COVID-19, our main purpose is to help save the American Restaurant," reads the concept's Facebook page. "While also providing delicious fresh meals to our consumers!"
As of right now, the meal kit program works with two of the group's concepts, The Living Room on Main and The Black Pearl.
You can choose from nine signature feasts like 'You Bet... Churrasco' made with chargrilled and braised lean flank steak, sautéed onions & peppers, shredded carrots, garlic & fresh herb chimichurri, choice of cilantro lime jasmine rice or oven-roasted patatas bravas. The menu also features poultry, seafood, and meatloaf dishes. Prices start at $11.99.
Each Feast has the nutritional value on the website page to view before ordering.
Just a heads up, being that these meals are not made with any preservatives or chemicals, they are not to be frozen and reheated. Those who order kits should keep them refrigerated before reheating. Feasts will last 3-5 days—seafood being the shortest at three days.
To get in on the meal kit madness, hop on feastlocal.co and fill up your cart with desired dishes, and then opt for either delivery or pickup. All orders must be put in by Sunday 8 p.m. to be picked up, or delivered, by that following Wednesday.
