As this rollercoaster of a year comes to a close, we’re thinking about all the things we did right (cooking under the sun and stars, helping people celebrate special moments in their lives, exploring new places, cultures and foodways, feeding you on riverbanks and seashores, in meadows and our dining room) as well as all the things we want more of (good food and good people, new adventures, travel, growth, curiosity, community).
A very heartfelt thank you to each of you that has sat at our table, followed along on our journey or rooted for us from the sidelines. Running a small but passionate business is hard but deeply rewarding work, and we couldn’t do it without you. Warmest wishes for a lovely holiday season and a year ahead filled with joy and abundance.
TAZÓN POZOLE Thursday, December 19 Tournant Dining Room, 920 NE Glisan St 5-9pm, no reservations necessary
Come join us for the last pozole party of the year! What a fine way to cruise into the holidays, with a convivial evening of cozy soups, cheesy nachos and icy margaritas – all prepared by someone other than you! It will be like a mini-vacay to sunny Mexico to fortify you and set you right.
BASICS: Steamy bowls start at $12 and you can choose from pork rojo, chicken verde or verduras (vegan), plus traditional and not so traditional add-ins. This month we’re also offering a special seafood pozole!
BONUS: The entire menu is gluten-free, in case you’re into that kind of thing.
PRO TIP: You’ll want to start with some sheet pan nachos or Shauna’s sparkling fresh ceviche and save room for Joe’s famous chocolate flan with mezcal caramel.
If you’re looking for the perfect way to ring in the new year, we’ve got you. Enjoy cozy lodge vibes while we cook you a family-style feast from the flames, then dance your way into 2020 with all the toasting, revelry, oysters and bubbly you can handle!
Rumor has it that the lodge is booked for the evening, but a shuttle service will be provided for guests staying nearby at the luxurious Black Butte Ranch. Feel free to contact Suttle Lodge for all the details!

As guests have shared, this is truly a trip of a lifetime. We hope you’ll come make lasting memories with us.
