Urban Farmer, Portland’s Steakhouse, Portland, OR
The bountiful brunch buffet at Urban Famer Portland has become legendary and we are privileged to welcome back families to feast together and raise a glass to spring. That means staying true to Easter classics like our array deviled egg accoutrements, house smoked fish and carrot + coffee cakes, tarts, and trifles abound. However that also means enticing with something new each year.
As National Eggs Benedict day falls on Easter this year, we had to include a build your own benedict bar with our famous house made sourdough English muffins and béarnaise or sauce choron to complete the look. Something sweet? Let the chefs guide you through our French toast bar with Bourbon bananas, honey and orange mascarpone or foietella for the adventurous set. Our suggestion would be to take a trip through both with a stop at the bloody mary bar on your way back to the table.
It’s been an amazing year here at Urban Farmer! With our new location in Cleveland we’ve seen a lot of our staff grow their careers and not just take on new roles but excel at them. We couldn’t be prouder of the team we’ve built! Next year looks to be just as exciting, not that we’re quite ready to share any of that news yet… But 2014 isn’t quite over and we’ve still got a wonderful Christmas feast to share with you and your loved ones. Chef Matt has prepared a menu of classics and new favorites. We hope to see you before the New Year!
The Flying Stag
Although we’ve been barrel-aging cocktails for some time now, our bartenders have really started to understand the nuances of the craft this year. They’ve developed partnerships with many local distillers to create delightful twists on classic cocktails that mellow and ripen with the right amount of aging. One such collaboration is with the gin experts over at House Spirits. They provided us with a barrel and some of their award winning Aviation Gin, which Tyler combined with Hennessy and Cocchi Americano. It was in the barrel for twenty-one days before we tapped it. The result is an earthy, slightly sweet but entirely quaffable beverage that only improves as it breathes. We’ll definitely be making this one again!
Being a hotel restaurant we have the advantage of opening for three meal periods every day of the year. Through rain, sleet and snow we follow the intrepid postman in our perseverance, providing hospitality to everyone walking in our front doors. Because we’re available everyday we look forward to the holiday season knowing that it’s an opportunity to go above and beyond the usual expectations of a restaurant. From decorating to inventing playful new dishes that riff on family favorites, our entire staff takes pride in hosting families that are looking for a less stressful dining experience as well as weary travelers who aren’t able to be with their loved ones on a special day. If you find yourself in need of a little warmth, hospitality, or just a glass of wine and home cooked meal, we’re here for you. Happy holidays
