Summer Menu, Adelsheim Wine, Jazz, US Open Tennis Party
SUMMER “GREATEST HITS” MENU LAUNCHES THIS THURSDAY
Heirlooms are finally edible (by our standards), Hermiston watermelons came in last Thursday (6-8 weeks late), we wrote cherries into the coming menu last Friday and my chef told me that his supplier alerted him this morning that “top-notch-cherry season will last less than two weeks this year” (so we wrote blackberry recipes).
Chef Nate and I decided that our summer menu is going to run so briefly that we were going to bring back the “Greatest Summer Hits” of 2016-2018 and plan to launch our fall menus as early in the fall as possible.
It’s been a tough summer to be a “farm-to-fork” restaurant. Chef Nate and I thank you very sincerely,
SOME KICK-@#$ JAZZ THIS SAT.

BIG SCREEN TELECAST OF THE US OPEN FINALS – FOR A CAUSE!
You wouldn’t know it, but I am a former tennis pro and am on the board of a group that keeps about 75 very young and very at-risk kids caught up in school and running around North Portland tennis courts instead of letting them go home to latchkey-kid situations.
This Sunday at Tavern, we will be doing a ticketed buffet happy hour from 1:00, with two projection systems set up, one with the live Men’s finals and the other with a replay of the Women’s Finals. Everything you need to know can be found by clicking the links below!
If you’re a tennis fan and, like me, am tired of watching Grand Slam finals alone, buy a ticket!
