Wildly Anticipated Revelry Will Open August 16

DJs and late-night Korean street food will be the name of the game at Rachel Yang's first Portland venture

The team behind Revelry is a match only the Pacific Northwest could make: Two powerhouse chefs from Seattle, Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi (JouleRevel), have teamed up with two nightlife maestros from Portland, Eric and Karen Bowler (Tube, Fortune), to bring you a flavor-packed Korean menu brimming with sweet, fishy, tangy, and crunchy creations until 2 a.m. weekends (midnight all other nights). Of course, you'll be banging your head to Notorious B.I.G. at that time, so your veins will obviously crave potent Korean street food.

Revelry is just days from opening, and PoMo reports the restaurant and bar will fling open the doors at 210 SE MLK Blvd August 16. Scoop machine Karen Brooks writes of Yang and Chirchi:

This creative, technically dialed duo seem born for Portland. Revelry's menu looks positively Stumptown: a bad-ass, comfort-loving, ingredient-obsessed list. What could be more Portland than a dish called Mrs. Yang's Spicy Fried Chicken with Crack Sauce, full of gochujang fumes? To up the ante, liver will be served on the side.

As previously reported, Revelry is in-part modeled after Yang and Chirchi's Seattle restaurant Revel, known for serving Korean street food and creative Asian-ingredient cocktails at a good value. Revelry will be located inside of a historical building and won't be some sort of massive, rave-y warehouse spot: Expect around 60 seats, with ten at the bar. Other pertinent new details from PoMo include a "street-pop vibe, complete with a retro boombox installation." Look for more updates here coming soon.
