TANNER CREEK TAVERN, MODERN PUB FARE IN THE PEARL
Tanner Creek Tavern, the newest dining and drinking destination in the Pearl District from Portland chef and restauranter David Machado. This is Machado's fourth operation alongside his current establishments Nel Centro, Altabria, and Citizen Baker, and previously at Vindahlo and Lauro Kitchen.
Located right beside the new Hampton Inn Suites is Tanner Creek Tavern's upscale twist on modern pub fare. With chef Trevor Payne (previously at Olympia Provisions, Little Bird Bistro, and recently shuttered Taylor Railworks) leading the kitchen, guests can find globally influenced creations including Fried Beets with Smoked Blue Cheese Dressing, Confit Pork Shank, White Beans, Bacon, and Creamed Salsa Verde, and a hearty Tavern Burger featuring House Steak Sauce, Fried Onions, Gruyere on a seeded bun.
With over 5,000 sq ft of dining space Tanner Creek Tavern boasts two private dining rooms, outdoor seating, lounge, dining, and bar areas this is one place to bring a group. The decor throughout is very reminiscent of Portland's early industrial days with the use of steel, concrete, and Douglas Fir beams in the large space.

scroll below to see some scrumptious bites from Tanner Creek's fall menu
Deviled Egs, Trout Roe and Dill. Cold, creamy, and just enough of a snack to get your hunger started.
Shave Apple and Kohlrabi, Candied Walnut, Pickled Mustard Seed, and white Cheddar. A bright and crunchy salad, perfect for those who can't deal with the usual end of crunchy summer produce.
Now if there is one starter dish you MUST order from my suggestion it would be the Pan seared Sea Scallops with Caramelized Apples, and Celery Root Puree. The scallops were like crusted butter, tender on the inside with the most perfect caramelization on both sides. This dish was absolute scallop perfection!
If you happen to be a fan of flakey, moist, seared to perfection fish then order the Crusted Sturgeon on top of Fennel Confit, and Saffron Cream. Talk about mouthwatering preparation.
One huge tip I would love to leave you with today, regardless of appetite or time, please ORDER DESSERT!
Creamy, smooth and just the right amount of honey sweetness is how this wonderful Honey Panna Cotta with Watermelon Agrodolce and Watermelon Sorbet tasted
And, if you really want a decadent treat that is one part nostalgic and equally delicious order the Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Cake with Blackberry Sorbet. The Mousse is light and airy, and covered with a blanket of chocolate. The tartness of the blackberry sorbet compliments the sweet peanut butter mousse in the fondest way, the same way a PB and J does. Trust me on this, order it!
So tell me, who wants to go to go grab a bite and what dishes are you excited about?
