Irving St. Kitchen is a Soulful New American restaurant anchored in slow cooking and deep flavors. The restaurant opened in Portland's Pearl District in May of 2010 by Doug Washington and brothers Steven and Mitch Rosenthal.
The fried chicken. The butterscotch pudding and the ever evolving menu. One of my favorites in Portland.
Food is decent, but seems overpriced. To wit: $4.50 for a plain cup of black coffee. Nice environment, attentive staff, just be ready to spend money.
Happy Hour PBR and Whiskey is a steal.
If you're lucky enough to be here when the wild mushroom and truffle savory cumble is on the menu... Just get 12.
Great atmosphere, okay food. Plenty of stellar brunch spots in Portland, this is great for a large group but pricy.
I highly recommend drinking a broken Negroni with breakfast
Fried chicken and cocktails
Great food and not too pretentious. I do not like bloody marys, but multiple people said they were awesome.
Everything we had was exceptional. The fois gras was next level (I've lived in France). The trout was complex, zesty and delicious.
Exceptional brunch. Salmon Benedict, Pancake and Bloody Mary all unparalleled. A not-to-be-missed Portland foodie destination
The doughnuts at brunch are craaaaazy good.
Chef Sarah Shafer (a CITY GRIT alum) is one of the most talented chefs we know. Don’t miss her Smoked Albacore Tuna Crudo, BBQ Shrimp, Bourbon Glazed Porchetta, or the Crispy Cheddar Grits!
Best Fried Chicken. Love it.
Hmmm...$40 for a short stack of pancakes, mediocre salmon Benedict and lukewarm coffee? Ambiance is nice but food not even close to matching price.
Great Cocktails and food.
The soup was amazing, so were the drinks.
Get the donuts. Don't ask why, just get them.
Bee's Knees! Happy hour special from 4:30-6:00pm.
Patton Valley Rosé is delicious!
Get the salmon grävlax benedict & jasmine green tea for brunch.
The best doughnut I've ever had!
Egg nachos were awesome!!!
Try the Pastrami Double Burger
Try the Scrambled Egg Nachos
Try the Steak
Try the Pork Chop
Try the Meatballs
Voted PDX's best Bloody Mary. Truly is one of the best Bloody Mary's I have ever had. Make sure to order one with your amazing brunch.
The Moroccan eggs will leave your breath smelling like you ate cloves of garlic.
Another great happy hour, featuring the amazing egg and pork belly on a waffle with maple syrup and the best butterscotch pudding ever.
Dude. The food here is amazing. Jambalaya, squid Ink risotto to the bacon wrapped rabbit. Everything was super tasty. The wait staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. Austin visit!
Bartenders Michael & Lisa are quite personable!
The meatballs with Yukon potatoes and peppercorn corn sauce with accompanying corn bread is to die for!
Highly recommend the "mixed bag" to start
All of the food here is phenomenal (as are the cocktails). Stracciatella Salad is phenomenal, especially paired with the Halibut. The waitstaff is super friendly and helpful for recommendations too!
Try the Bibb Wedge
Try the Spring Asparagus Fritatta
Try the Fried Chicken and Waffles
The Grits are out of the world... well, everything is, I hardly know where to begin...
amazing! The hen was fantastic.
Slow cooking brunch heaven with great spicy Bloody Mary's
Get the Dirty Sexy Pig's Head. Texture of pulled pork, dark, rich, and very filling.
Good brunch, HOWEVER, come after 1pm to avoid hungover dipshits with embroidered jeans and Diesel shoes. (You can imagine their dates)
Get the "feast" burger. Has a little Jalapeño kick that won't disappoint.
One of the best brunch spots in the city that no one seems to know about. Start with a Mixed Bag, then graduate to Mary’s Organic Fried Chicken & Waffles. Amazing Bloody Mary too.
Bacon wrapped oysters? I'll have a dozen.
Long time customer leaving due to HORRIBLE service! Not worth the trip! Try Paragon instead!
As good as the food and wine are, it's not enough to make up for the horrible clientele this place attracts. Be prepared for embroidered shirts, bad shoes, and horrible Macy's cologne.
