PORTLAND | Tasty n Alder Downtown Portland is the third restaurant from John Gorham after Toro Bravo and Tasty n Sons and follows the template or serving up fantastic Pacific Northwest Food, using locally sourced seasonal ingredients. The menu contains a range of dishes with influences from all over the world, including a few favourites from the other restaurants. It’s a casual space, full of natural light and wood. There’s a large bar space, which hints towards a focus on cocktails while the atmosphere itself is loud and lively.

We visited for brunch and sampled a number of dishes that impressed. The radicchio salad mixed with bacon lardons, manchego and six minute egg is a must order dish, with the sharpness of the raidcchio tempered by the rest of the ingredients. The cast iron fritata with tomato braised escarole, english peas, croutons and fontina is also fantastic. Also worth considering is the very tasty, almost pizza-like breakfast flatbread topped with egg, beef bacon, asparagus, spring onion and goat feta. Those in need of a drink are in good hands too, with a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available throughout the day. Sparkling wine, Bloody Marys, “Grown Ass Milkshakes” and spiked coffee drinks anyone?

In the evening, the focus switches more towards the meaty end of the scale, with a range of top quality steak options available but there’s still diversity and something for everyone on the dinner menu. We’ve heard fantastic things about the Brandt farms Hanger Skewer and the Bulgogi Short Ribs with house kimchi, also made using Brandt farms meat.

Gorhan might be on his 8th restaurant now, but he’s not let standards slip at the older places. Tasty n Alder still has queues despite opening in 2013 and it’s easy to see why – great food and great service. Visit during off peak times like weekday brunches to be guaranteed a table. Alternatively put your name on the list and have a browse around the many shops in the area while waiting for the table – you’re not forced to wait in line while waiting for your table.
