(Gerry Furth-Sides) Feastly is designed for food lovers looking for authentic flavors in freshly prepared catered meals.   Feastly is more than a regular Restaurant dinning experience. It’s a stage where passionate chefs get the opportunity to showcase their hidden talents and feasters get to enjoy chef’s creative menus. Its an adventure!

 

Noah Karesh is the force behind this Inspired by his travels and unique food experiences abroad, wanted to unlock the diverse food and cultural potential of cities everywhere. e sought to reintroduce the original social dining option: the home cooked meal.

From this Feastly is grown into a central marketplace where passionate chefs connect with adventurous eaters seeking more authentic dining options by offering unique meals served in a chef’s home. In lowering the barriers to entry for chef to share their culinary skills and stories with the world, he wanted to let chefs monetize their passions and provide exciting new food opportunities for eaters.

At present, Feastly is a growing community of eaters and chefs who want more from dining. Feasters seek authentic food, served around big tables with good people. They are adventurous, but remember their humble food beginnings. A Feaster may be just as excited about an inviting bowl of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich as she is for a goat roast. And, our chefs are a talented, hospitable group of food lovers with incredible abilities to turn their homes into warm, inviting spaces filled with the wonderful flavors and aromas of their favorite dishes.

Chef Rubina Khan, who cooked a communal meal became acquainted with FEASTLY when she herself attended a dinner.  She reported,  “Dining at Feastly myself reminded me of my college days dining in the friendly school cafeteria where everyone could talk to each other. The communal style seating created a warm and intimate setting for dinning with strangers.   We sat across from an amazing young couple next to us that dines at the Abbot Kinney Feastly every other week to try new food. There was great energy in the room. That’s when I decided to be part of Feastly.

Rubina hosted her first dinner on Friday July 21,2017 at FeastlyLA’s Abbot Kinney location.
