Tabor Tavern and Swift and Union are located on opposite sides of the Portland map but they both provide the surrounding neighborhoods a perfect place to grab some delicious food and a cold one.
Swift and Union calls the Kenton area home. You know- it’s where Paul, the giant lumberjack statue stands. It’s a cute neighborhood with some great places to eat (Swift and Union is the top choice!) and some wonderful little shops like Mantel. If you haven’t visited the Kenton Neighborhood in a little while I suggest you take a walk down N. Denver St. After a little bit of shopping stop in and say hello to Zig and Kristen, owners and fellow Kentonites themselves. You’ll find something tasty on the seasonal menu- like a crisp radicchio salad or a warm plate of gnocchi.
Now, if you’re close to Mt. Tabor area you are going to want to stop in and grab some grub at Tabor Tavern. You can say hello to Kristen and Zig here too- together they own both amazing eateries. Located off East Burnside it’s a perfect stop to grab their fried chicken sandwich (it’s awesome) or take home a jar of bacon jam! Don’t forget about brunch- the huevos rancheros are pretty darn tasty. (Swift and Union rocks weekend brunch as well.)
