Tanner Creek Tavern is Portland chef and restaurateur David Machado’s newest eating and drinking establishment in the Pearl District, next to the new Hampton Inn & Suites. Chef Jeff Larson’s menu emphasizes seasonal, approachable tavern fare with inspired flavors from around the world.
The dining room, lounge area, bar, two private dining rooms and outdoor seating echo Portland’s early industrial history with concrete, steel, exposed Douglas Fir beams, tile and glass. Floor-to-ceiling glass hydraulic doors flood this tavern with light. The Tavern honors neighborhood history with black and white murals of historic maps and photographs of the epic construction project that diverted the original Tanner Creek underground.
