Wilfs Restaurant & Bar forges seasonal menus of classic American recipes from locally sourced organic ingredients presented with a modern flair. Expert chef Deb Serkoian ensures each entree is a mouthwatering medley of Northwest flavors, fetching organic ingredients from locales such as Painted Hills, Draper Valley, Rogue Creamery, and Carlton Farms. Diners catch a culinary show as lettuce illusionists create caesar salads table-side ($9.75 for lunch, $16.25 for two at dinner), magically merging fresh romaine and pecorino romano cheese with egg, anchovies, and extra-virgin olive oil before hiding it all in a top hat and turning it into a bouquet of flowers. At lunch, the herbivorous portobello sandwich nestles a marinated, charbroiled mushroom with smoked mozzarella and roasted peppers in a fresh pub bun adorned with green-olive pesto. Evening entrees often include hearty selections such as steak Diane flambé ($35.50), with choice beef medallions in a demi-glace flamed tableside for delicious entertainment or rustic birthday candles. Summer pasta ($25) lightens up luxurious meals as fresh tiger prawns swim in an herb-infused brown-butter sauce beneath roasted jalapeños, celeriac, and pumpkin seeds.
Wilfs' opulent space, located next to Union Station, relaxes eaters into high-backed chairs cushioned in scarlet upholstery, as their seasonal selections perch atop flawless white tablecloths. Adding to the entree experience, an extensive wine list competes with a lineup of signature cocktails to win imbibers' affections, and red-brick accents reflect the rhythms of live music Wednesday–Saturday, with Portland jazz musicians such as Ron Steen and Tony Pacini infusing food with electrifying improvisation.
Wilfs Restaurant & Bar
Four nights a week, the notes from live local jazz artists resonate off the high copper ceilings and bronze chandeliers of Wilfs Restaurant & Bar, which has served upscale cuisine within Portland's restored Union Station building since 1975. Head chef Deb Serkoian complements the serenade by crafting seasonal dishes with organic ingredients culled from local and regional farmers, including fresh seafood and meat from sources such as Double 'R' Ranch, Draper Valley, and Carlton Farms. At the bar, mixologists pour classic cocktails and new signature concoctions inspired by the seasons, recalling the annual beauty of a violet bud as it blooms into a glass of cabernet.
