Food here is high quality with great presentation. I have to say that I feel the B Line is a little overpriced for what it is, however. Just bear that in mind if you choose to go here: it is good, but spendy.
The B Line serves a variety of standard cafe fare, sandwiches, soups, and salads, as well as a heartier assortment of entrees, such as Penne alla Vodka and Salmon Salad.
I had the Salmon Salad; the salmon was deliciously marinated and grilled, then laid on a generous bed of mixed greens with various garden salad fixings on the side. You get a choice of dressing, and I chose Soy Ginger. I do wish the greens had been chopped before serving, as there were huge pieces that were awkward. That's my only complaint about the otherwise fine meal.
Someone in our party had a quesedilla, which he claimed was the best he'd ever had.
Everyone in our party was satisfied with the food.
The B Line is housed in a restored building on 4th avenue, which has a rustic kind of ambiance. It's very visually appealing.
The B Line is also usually very populated; would be nice if it stayed opened later. The owner also maintains Time Market at University and 4th ave, which is another Tucson favorite of mine.
Great atmosphere, always fun to sit at the big communal table by the register. Small but always good beer and wine selection. Favorite tonight was the vanilla porter.
The food has always been competently prepared and worth the price; has never really wowed me until tonight's salmon salad. Try the avocado dressing.
Rotating dessert display is the best in town I can say tonight, but I'll give the Cup another chance next week.
Dine in, take out, cater, it is all first class at Feast. The talented, friendly chef aims to please and he doesn't miss. Feast is an adventure if you are only popping in to pick up a picnic carry out, have lunch from the inventive menu, or order a catered party.
I personally didn't care for it, but I admit I have bland tastes compared to most people. My African tuna sandwich (only thing which seemed to allow me to avoid peppers, onions, etc.) had diced crunchy green things in it, possibly bell pepper.
So much for the food, that's subjective. The waiter was irritating. His stock response to everything from taking an order to being asked for the check was "You got it."
