C'est Si Bon! Crêpes + Vins
C’est Si Bon!, John and Gabrielle Esbeck’s French-style crêperie, doesn’t really have a happy hour menu. Rather, it has a regular menu and during happy hour, everything on it’s game for dollar discounts, from the pâtes, salads and seasonal crêpes to red, white and sparkling wines produced by growers who run sustainable, biodynamic and organic operations.
Hands down—and for obvious reasons—the main draw at Pacific Northwest brewing legend John Harris’ gastropub is the beer. But as every beer lover knows, nothing pairs with a pint quite like chicken wings. Ecliptic does them, but not they way you’d think. First, they’re not wings—they’re drumsticks that have been have been given a confit for 24 hours, glazed with a sweet, spicy sauce, and served with a crunchy celery salad.
Jonathan Berube and Lily Tollefsen know their seafood. If you’ve heard their story, then you know that they ran Tollefsen’s father’s lobster joint back in Long Island and named their restaurant Radar in his honor—it’s his nickname. So when you ask them for oysters, you know they’re going to be good. But the kitchen also fires up tender ropes of pork shoulder served with soft discs of grits and topped with a guajillo and árbol chili puree. Yum.
Northeast Portland is home to lots of happy hour spots, and we think you’d be especially down with these crêpes and wine, craft beer and seafood-friendly spots.
