Andrew Goodman Has a Lot on His Plate


Andrew Goodman was having fun Monday night. His restaurant, Feast, was hosting the second of Texas Monthly’s Fire & Smoke dinners, which brought together chefs Stefan Bowers and Jason Dady. He recently won a year-long lawsuit that will let Feast stay at 1024 S. Alamo St.

And he has plans for more in the works.

First up is a new bar called Haunt at the St. Anthony Hotel, which he hopes to open in the next two weeks. It will have some light bar food as well as drinks. It’s named after the ghosts said to

Shortly after that, Goodman and chef Bowers will open a restaurant in the luxury hotel at 300 E. Travis St. Goodman, a San Antonio native, says the place will be ready in about three weeks, but Bowers wasn’t sure. A kitchen is being added, and that might cause more time to make sure everything is ready.

There’s also a question about the name. Goodman referred to it as Rebelle, but Bowers said that could change. Regardless of the name, it will be a nice dining addition to the area near the Tobin Performing Arts Center and the Majestic.

After that, Goodman will be turning his attention to a proposed project for the old Fire Station No. 7 at 604 S. Alamo St., across from the Alamo Street Eat Bar.

A full plate perhaps, but great news for those us who know the power of Bowers’ food and Goodman’s flair.

‘Feast’ Moving into Former Oloroso Location


The Oloroso sign is still up at 1024 S. Alamo St., but that will change before long.  The restaurant, formerly owned by chef Josh Cross, closed in November last year. Now, says businessman Andrew Goodman, his restaurant, Feast, is scheduled to open there in late September.

“It isn’t going to look at all like Oloroso,” said Goodman on Tuesday. He was working on the plastic protected floor in the front dining room, laying down tape so that he could paint baseboards.  The look, he says, will be “very crisp and clean” with white walls, dark wood floors, ball chandeliers over each table and “ghost” (transparent) chairs.

“We want the (atmosphere) to be cool and classic, but with great energy, a little sexy,” says Goodman.

He’s currently working on a menu with his chef, Stefan Bowers, who will be working at Feast beginning the first of September. Bowers is currently at 20 Nine Restaurant & Wine Bar at the Quarry.

The menu will offer a combination of appetizers, entrees as well as smaller plates with more generous proportions than one ordinarily associates with “small plates.”  Goodman describes the menu as being “flexible” — for instance if someone wants to try three of the salads, they can get smaller portions of all three on one plate. The food, at this point, is planned to be “New American with Mediterranean flair.”

He and Bowers will be doing a lot of tasting of food and wine pairings as they develop the menu and wine list, says Goodman. “We want the food and wine to work together well.”

Feast will be open only for dinner for a time after it opens, and will have a full bar, says Goodman. Goodman has had other businesses in San Antonio, including an antique store, Eden, but this is his first restaurant venture.
