With emphasis on local, organic sourcing and simple straightforward presentations, Urban Farmer redefines the modern Portland steakhouse. The ambiance is at once a tribute to the quaintness of a restored farmhouse and the aesthetic audacity of mid-20th century modernism. The country chic décor designed by David Ashen uses organic, reclaimed and modern materials such as a twenty-foot communal table sourced from an old-growth Douglas Fir.
Our menus reflect an emphasis on Northwest, sustainable ingredients and simple, straightforward preparations. We offer a range of beef options including grass-fed Oregon beef, pasture-raised, grain-finished beef, as well as corn-fed beef. Our beverage program extends the theme of local and sustainable with a 350-bottle wine list, beer selections from the Portland city limits and cocktails made with Oregon spirits. Focusing on sustainable practices, Urban Farmer creates a connection between the diner and our local farmers, ranchers, distillers and winemakers.
Urban Farmer is open daily for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner. Our popular weekend brunch and Bloody Mary bar is available on the weekends from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Urban Farmer is located on the 8th floor of the Nines Hotel at 525 SW Morrison Street in downtown Portland.
Our relationship with local producers extends beyond our kitchen doors with our beverage program. The Urban Farmer cocktail list celebrates the early American cocktail culture of the 1800’s and its evolution through prohibition. We continue to celebrate this heritage by showcasing Oregon craft distilleries and their abundance of unique local spirits and ingredients. All of our Draft Beer selections are produced within the Portland city limits, and our bottle selections include the best of the Northwest as well as International favorites. Over 60% of our wine list features Northwest producers with special attention given to winemakers who choose organic, sustainable and/or biodynamic techniques. Our Portland bar is proud to stay true to its roots, serving only the finest locally prepared beverages for a truly authentic dining experience.
Our bar takes its inspiration from early American cocktail culture. With the emergence of Oregon craft distilleries, we have been afforded an abundance of unique components for our cocktails. Our focus is on local spirits and local ingredients.
