Tasty Brunch Pop-Up Takes Over Vacated Bar King Space
Now that Bar King has left its space in Southeast Portland, Chefstable is bringing another one of its restaurants into the space, albeit temporarily: On Saturdays and Sundays through June 13, the once-popular brunch spot Tasty will take over the SE 6th dining room and patio for seated brunch service. In case you missed it, the restaurant group took over the Tasty brand after the Gorhams left their restaurant empire behind, planning to reopen the restaurant in Lake Oswego in 2021. Before Tasty Lake Oswego opens, however, some of the restaurant’s original dishes — plus new treats from Portland hotshot baker Katherine Benvenuti — will be available on the weekends in Portland proper. On Instagram, the restaurant has teased dishes like quiches, fava greens and spinach with hakurei turnips, and those classic patatas bravas. Make a reservation for brunch, either indoors or outdoors, on the restaurant’s website. [EaterWire]
The Tipping Point Takes Over Deadstock
There weren’t quite enough events to do a full-blown EventWire this week, but another cool pop-up caught our eye for this morning roundup: Houston cafe The Tipping Point Coffee is visiting Deadstock for a few weekend events. From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 5, the Tipping Point will take over the barista counter at Deadstock, with a latte-art throw-down at a to-be-disclosed location Saturday night. On Sunday, June 6, the two will throw a cookout at Deadstock from 2 to 5 p.m. Learn more about the events via Deadstock’s Instagram. [EaterWire]
