MAR's website says it also have a tequila tasting room.
Since the much-lamented closing of Feast in February, people have been wondering what business will move into that space across from the old Decatur Depot. It looks like the new tenant will be MAR, a "coastal Mexican" restaurant, as first reported by Decatur Metro. The MAR website says the restaurant will open in mid-October and will offer "wood-roasted fish, coastal tacos, tostados, ceviche, aguachile, sashimi, carpaccio, oysters, lobster and crab buckets, tequilas, mojitos, micheladas and margaritas." Patch is seeking details and will pass them along.

The beloved dining spot closed three months ago.
Many people were sad when Feast restaurant closed in late February. Feast was a neighborhood place where many people went to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays and wedding anniversarys. It was located at 314 E. Howard Ave., just across the road from the train depot. Do you have ideas about how this space could be used now? What should go here?

I'll never forget a dinner with friends at Feast. Now that the restaurant is closing, share your memories.
My wife and I married on a beautiful Saturday in April 2009. The next day, we went out to dinner with guests from Plano, Texas -- Angie and Doug, Susan's best friend from high school and her husband. Susan and Angie had reconnected after 25 years. I'd never met Doug or Angie until 48 hours earlier. We wanted good food, of course, but also a relaxed, casual space where we could hear each other talk. We chose Feast, a cozy neighborhood restaurant blocks from the more highly publicized restaurants on the Decatur Square. We sat on the terrace in back and enjoyed the spring breeze and the late afternoon sun. We toasted each other and Doug told stories about serving in the Marines. Susan and Angie talked about the dumb things they did at …

"For the first time in my life, I am going to put my health first," owner Teri Rogers says.
Feast, a neighborhood eatery across from the old train depot, is closing Saturday, owner Teri Rogers announced on the restaurant website. Rogers said she's battling breast cancer and needs to concentrate on her health, saying, Although I am very positive that I will kick this disease again, it has been difficult for me to stay as focused on the business as I should be. For the first time in my life, I am going to put my health first. She admits the economy has hurt business as well. Although I have enjoyed seeing your friendly and supportive faces over the years, there just does not seem to be enough business to cover my expenses, much less make a profit. Feast offered a good brunch and a New Year's Eve party and was a good place to …
