At Brix Tavern, executive chef Kevin Kennedy stamps his unique fingerprint on American comfort food favorites, including brick-oven-fired artisanal pizzas and house-smoked rotisserie-style prime rib, chicken, and turkey. Like his cuisine, his cocktails are made with locally sourced ingredients, such as seasonal Oregon berries mixed with fresh lime and tequila. According to Portland Monthly, the tavern stocks more than 30 canned beers in addition to a healthy selection on tap.
Patrons can imbibe in the expansive exposed brick dining area or build a nest in the elevated living room loft, replete with comfy couches and leather chairs. Brix delivers on entertainment with flat-screen TVs, live musicians Thursdays, DJ sets on weekends, and retro arcade games that remind us of a time when space invaders heading for Earth were a mere fantasy.
