We’re at peak harvest time, and we’re adding Naomi’s favorite short pasta to the menu to help hold all the beautiful sauces coming out of the garden.
Creste Di Gallo (or Cockscomb) is fun to eat and delicious! We are tossing it in lightly-spiced Vodka Sauce with housemade tomato conserva and cream. We finish it off with a few blistered “Habanadas,” one of our favorite locally sourced peppers. They are UN-spicy with the floral flavor of habanero!
The café menu also includes a beautiful Milky Fresh Mozzarella Burrata with Charantais melon, prosciutto and mint sauce, Summer Corn, Basil, and Zucchini Lasagna with Jimmy Nardello peppers and green salad, Liberty Farms Duck Breast with Italian plum and tomato mostarda, herb salad Chicken Liver Mousse Toast, and more.
Sorry for making you drool over all of our weekly specials! We know a lot of our BEAST friends came from other parts of the country, but for those with friends and family in PDX, you can live vicariously through GIFT CARDS. Perfect for a wedding or baby gift, students that are moving to town for school, and more.
