Park Kitchen Expands Happy Hour November 1st

November 1, 2016 – Portland, Ore. – Park Kitchen chef David Sapp released a new and greatly expanded Happy Hour today, using the majority of the new fall dinner menu as the backbone.  What was a five-dish menu has now been increased to 15 snacks and small plate selections at a reduced price.  Happy Hour at Park Kitchen is available nightly from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. starting Tuesday, November 1st.

“We’re finding that our guests are interested in sampling a wider variety of our menu with smaller portions,” says Sapp.  “I love it as a chef because we can do more dishes using all the great fall produce we’re seeing right now.  We loved the menu so much, we thought, ‘Why not just offer this during Happy Hour as well?’”

As with all Park Kitchen dishes, the Happy Hour menu features the best seasonal ingredients from the Pacific Northwest, as seen through the lens of chef Sapp and influenced by his southern roots.  The new Happy Hour menu will phase dishes in and out frequently, but currently includes:


*Radishes, miso butter, nori $4
Grilled pork terrine slider, secret sauce $5
*Jimmy Nardello peppers, peanuts, scallions $6
*Salmon & beet tartare, beet chicharron, kombu $6

For Happy Hour, bar manager Curtis Day is featuring a customer on-tap favorite, “Call Me Old Fashioned,” available for $6 ($12 at dinner) and features bourbon, barrel-aged bitters, and demerara sugar.  A rotating tap beer list is available for $5, and house red, white or sparkling wine for $6.  Returning to the dinner cocktail menu are some fall favorites including “The Original Sin,” which deploys  rye whiskey in a house-made quince shrub topped with cava; and “Portland Meets the Big Apple,” consisting of hazelnut-infused Clear Creek apple brandy, sweet vermouth and bitters, served up in the fashion of a Manhattan. Both drinks are $14.
