A Feast in Redway

Posted By on Sat, Apr 17, 2021 at 11:00 AM

Redway could use more places to eat, especially on Evergreen Drive, and now it's got that and then some. In January, Laura Lasseter and her family have opened up Cafe Feast in the old Meadows Cafe location. The menu still isn't committed to laminated paper  but a roster of items is developing, like the meatball street tacos and the marinated tri-tip sandwich with caramelized onion, organic greens and balsamic glaze. “We really wanted to be open," says Lasseter, "we wanted to hear what everybody wanted ... we're trying to see what works in our small kitchen.”

But according to its owners, the soon-to-open restaurant in the downstairs spot where Salt Fish House started out before moving to I Street will have a decidedly pan-Asian menu.

While Joe Tan and Jack Wu, both among the partners at Eureka’s Bayfront, are planning to offer sushi from the gleaming white counter, the bulk of the menu will be a spread of Taiwanese teppan dishes presided over by chef Yee Wen, whom diners may recognize from the teppanyaki grill at Bayfront. Wen’s cooking will be behind the scenes at Nori and he’ll be working with different flavors, like black pepper and mushroom sauces for the meat, seafood, tofu and noodles served on searing hot metal plates.
