We spend a lot of time talking about the diversity of meats we use in dinner preparations, how we partner with sustainable farmers and ranchers to bring our butchers the very best product to work with. We’ve even discussed the wonderful job our butcher’s do utilizing every part of whole animals so that we reduce waste and the need to outsource essentials such as stock. But when’s the last time we sat down and had a conversation about brunch?
We know, we know, Portlandia already parodied our city’s unfathomable love for the late-to-rise weekend meal. Every local has their favorite place, worth every second, or more likely hour, of the wait. There are hidden gems known only to a few and greasy spoons perfect for sopping up any remnants of last night’s fun. (In fact, our pastry chef Carrie recently profiled her fave.) Here at Urban Farmer we strive to bring the best of all worlds together. With an entire atrium to call home no matter how many faithfuls pour out of the elevator you never have to wait too long for a table. Chef Carrie’s house-made English muffins are airy but filling. No doubt after devouring one of our burgers or benedicts you’ll beg us for the recipe. (We’ve got you covered.)
Speaking of our pride and joy…
We offer six rotating benedicts, from the signature grass-fed, Highland Oak sirloin to a northwest staple, house-smoked Columbia River salmon. A current seasonal favorite features a healthy slice of heirloom tomato from Groundwork Organics or Creative Growers. With such large orders of tomatoes we like to share the love between our favorite farms! Also on the menu, fresh Dungeness crab, Tails & Trotters ham and California avocados, not to mention daily specials!
If you’re looking to get a feel of our ethos without investing in a full dinner experience, brunch is the perfect foray into what Urban Farmer truly means.
