Gotham Bldg Tavern and Family Supper
Chef Barry Powelson took over this red brick-fronted restaurant in north Portland in 2007. His menu consists of hearty comfort foods like Bear’s baby back ribs, grilled rib-eye steak, and an eponymous Gotham burger. However, the menu’s not all meaty and includes wild mushroom ravioli or pesto gnocchi. American-inspired desserts are made in-house, including pie à la mode and bananas Foster. The short wine list is accompanied by sweet cocktails like blueberry lemon drop or pink lemonade and select craft beers. Seating consists of patio tables, rectangular booths along the wall, and semi-private pods in back, constructed with 4x4s to seat large parties.
