Bishops Barbershop rented out Oso Market via Schwarzkopf Professional for an exclusive Guest Barbering event with famed barber, Matty Conrad. It was really cool to see Oso transformed with a stage, lights, projector and class room seating to put on a great event featuring one of the most prominent barbers in North America!

Oso Market + Bar, Portland, Oregon
Set in the Southeast Industrial District, the shop features Old World and local wines with a focus on organic and biodynamic producers. It also stocks an array of Portland-made gourmet treats, like Pinkleton’s Curious Caramel Corn and Alma Chocolates. In the bar area, gleaming white tiles line the back bar and a big, Broadway-style “Oso” sign hangs above it. Customized flights of wine, sherry or vermouth are a great deal at $14 to $15. Pair them with small bites, like montaditos (Spanish mini sandwiches), or dishes from the new chef, Steve Lohse. 726 S.E. Grand Ave., Portland, OR 97214; 503-232-6400; osomarket.com
Eater did a dining confidential featuring yours trul(ies)! It was real tough to decide -
See the original post here
Oregon is home to a lot of restaurants, bars, wineries, and breweries, but there are tons of hidden gems that the majority of Portlanders aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's many food players to share their recommendations for a recurring feature we call Dining Confidential.
When we asked Oso Market + Bar's Colin and Holly Howard where they like to eat, they were hard pressed to pick just one place.
Holly loves Biwa's pork stew, Firehouse's margherita pies, and Smokehouse Tavern's deviled eggs, while Colin says he's always trying to figure out a way to squeeze in a pho-and-cocktail happy hour at Fish Sauce.
But there is one restaurant that holds a special place in this couple's collective heart, and for sentimental reasons, too. The good kind.
That place is Mirakutei, the ramen, sushi, and Japanese tapas spot located at 536 E Burnside. The Howards specifically love the kitchen's black cod.
"We ate here the night we got engaged," Colin and Holly explain, "and practically teared up over the black cod. The glaze is darkly flavored with a light smokiness to it. The meat of the cod is so light and buttery. The relationship between the two is seamless and makes you want to pound your fist on the table after each bite. The simplicity of the space and the professionalism of the kitchen staff let you know how important the quality of the menu is here."

We are extremely excited to welcome Steve Lohse as our new head chef. He has overhauled the dinner menu - come in and check it out!
Eater PDX picked up the news here:
Chef Steve Lohse has new ideas for the restaurant's Northern Spanish and Southern French-inspired dishes
Over the weekend, SE Grand's Oso Market + Bar, a hybrid marketplace, bottleshop, and sit-down bar, welcomed a new celebrity chef from Brooklyn and unrolled a revamped menu. Chef Steve Lohse spent the previous three years overseeing the kitchen at Brooklyn's Lavender Lake, an awarded bar with a menu of small plates and sandwiches for pairing with wines or cocktails. He's also a former contestant on the Food Network's Chopped.
Owners of Oso, Colin Howard and wife Holly Johnson were already known for serving 20+ wines by the glass and cocktails with pickle-back pairings as well as for selling all of the ingredients for a picnic—from wines to cheeses and olives. Reaching out to Eater by email, Howard says, Lohse "has redesigned the menu to highlight the joy and excitement found in classic Northern Spanish and Southern French cuisine when executed with local ingredients of the Northwest."
To the lunch menu's sardines, salads, and open-face sandwiches, or montaditos, Oso Market + Bar adds the Calamari Salad with fennel, corn, garbanzo, and romesco aioli. New to the dinner menu are the Braised Pork Belly with yellow watermelon, heirloom beans, and sorrel; Roasted Heirloom Carrots with butter glaze, herbs, and dill yogurt; anthe House-Smoked Trout over roe and creme fraiche montadito with house-made potato chips.

The theme of Oso Market's monthly Adventure Brunch literally scours the earth for inspiration. Each first-weekend-of-the-month edition takes its point of focus from the culinary traditions of a different country. In June, for instance, they chose Cuba, serving up fried eggs alongside plantains, beans, and rice ($8), braised pork with yucca ($14), and pollo guisado, a traditional chicken stew ($12). Oso is primarily a drinks-focused spot, mind you, so don't miss out on their beverage adventures while you're at it—the Cuban-themed Hemingway Daiquiri ($10, with rum, lime, grapefruit, and maraschino liqueur) was the highlight of a solid menu. Also, I know it's weird for many people to eat dessert after brunch—I'm one of you—but the recently added house-made ice cream ($8) at Oso really should not be skipped during any visit to the establishment. They have a transcendent combo of Bee Local honey and Jacobsen's salt that will be, should be, and needs to be available always, plus a rotating seasonal—on my visit, pickled strawberry! I would even go so far as to say that it's worth ordering some after August's adventure brunch: This time they're going to China! (Note: Oso has a regular brunch menu on non-adventure weekends, organized around three of their favorite countries: France, Spain, and America.) Another bonus: Perhaps because the chicly appointed bottle shop/fancy grocery is primarily known as a wine resource and evening destination, there's hardly ever a wait. MARJORIE SKINNER
Brunch hours: Sat-Sun 11 am-3 pm, cocktails, beer, and wine, $$
Join us this Saturday and Sunday at 10am!
Cuba is the largest island in the Caribbean, and with over 11 million inhabitants, is the second-most populous after Hispaniola, albeit with a much lower population density for the region. It is a multiethnic country whose people, culture and customs derive from diverse origins, including the aboriginal Taíno and Ciboney peoples, the long period of Spanish colonialism, the introduction of African slaves, and a close relationship with the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
Cuba today is the only remaining Marxist-Leninist state to receive a "very high" human development ranking from the United Nations, and ranks well in measures of health and education.
June 6th and 7th, we take you to Cuba! Chef Jason and Sous Chef Elisa are bringing you the hits:
Cubano sandwich $11
Black beans & rice with plantains and crema (veg) with 2 fried eggs $8
Braised pork with yucca & 2 fried eggs $14
Avocado salad with eggs and queso fresco on farm greens $12
Chicken guisado with black beans and rice $12
Plantains brûlée $6
Tostones fried with Jacobson sea salt $7
Come into Oso for Negroni week and help raise money for local charity Bradley Angle. All negroni profits for the week will go directly to help domestic violence survivors. Drinking and helping people, that's what I call a good week.
About Bradley Angle:
Who We Are
Bradley Angle’s mission is to serve all people affected by domestic violence. We place any person experiencing or at risk for domestic violence at the center of our services and provide support for safety, education, empowerment, healing, and hope.
What we do
In 1975, Bradley Angle became the first domestic violence shelter on the West Coast (and only the fourth in the United States). Over the years, our services have expanded to include a 24- hour crisis line, transitional housing, support groups, community-based advocacy, culturally specific programming for African and African-American survivors, an economic empowerment program called Making Cent$, and support for LGBTQ survivors.
Bradley Angle has a long history of providing local leadership to address unmet community needs and services for domestic violence survivors and their families.
