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;

There are so many great places to eat in this town!

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 have a new chef and he's a celebrity?

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.

Negroni Week is coming June 1st through 7th

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.
