Gracie's Restaurant and Hotel deLuxe have announced details for mini golf-meets-food-pop-up, The 19th Hole, scheduled to kick off in early July. Taking over a parking lot on the corner of SW 15th and Yamhill, it will include a menu of rotating snacks, an all-can bar, custom-made picnic tables, and nine holes of mini-golf.
Though yet to be finalized, Gracie's Chef Mark Hosack's American-comfort cuisine will be the name of the game. Hosack is a graduate of New York's Culinary Institute of America and has been cooking in Portland for the past 25 years. The overall concept is summer favorites that are easy to eat out of hand while juggling a drink and a putter, so think tacos, sliders, brats, and summer side salads.
The drink menu is over the top, with 28 canned beverages already confirmed. In addition to cans of Rainier and Fort George, The 19th Hole will serve three of Underwood's canned wines and a host of ciders.
While a start date has not been released, some details have been provided. The pop-up will run from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday throughout July. There's potential for continual appearances through August and September. Construction is underway, and you can watch it unfold by following @19thHolePDX on Instagram. Admission will be free, and a round of golf will cost $6 per person.
