Portland summers are fueled by cold brew, so to kick off the season, Stumptown Coffee Roasters and Tusk will collaborate on a special brunch Saturday and Sunday, June 29th & 30th. Stumptown will be bringing their cold brew game in all of its glorious forms: nitro, cans and concentrate, and the Tusk team will be incorporating it into their menus in all kinds of fun ways (in addition to their seasonally driven brunch menu). No reservations, brunch is à la carte, and guests will receive some extra surprises to take home from Stumptown.

Tusk’s vegetable-driven, Middle Eastern-inspired menu is the creation of Submarine Hospitality Founders Joshua McFadden and Luke Dirks with Executive Chef/Partner Sam Smith. Smith’s time spent as opening sous chef at Philadelphia’s acclaimed Israeli restaurant Zahav, followed by his years as Chef de Cuisine at Ava Gene’s informs the ever-changing seasonal menus. All vegetables and most flours and grains are sourced directly from local farms Smith has built close relationships with over the years, and the dishes are meant to be shared in a convivial dining atmosphere. All flatbreads are baked in-house. The dessert program, helmed by pastry wiz Nora Mace, along with an inventive cocktail menu, are equally as seasonal. Tusk was named a FOOD & WINE Restaurant of the Year 2017, to Bon Appétit’s 50 Best New Restaurants, and has received praise from The New York Times, PUNCH, Portland Monthly, The Oregonian and others. Tusk is located at 2448 E. Burnside, Portland, Oregon, and open for dinner 7 nights a week, and brunch as well as a weekend happy hour on Saturdays and Sundays.
