For each of our monthly Oyster Socials, we collaborate with a chef or business we love. For November, we've got the boys from Mian in the house, which means a two-for-one dose of good food and drinks, plus a guaranteed good time.
Mian is the brainchild of double threat duo Chef Connor Martin (Firehouse, Boke Bowl, Shift Drinks) and Mixologist David Sigal (Racion, St. Jack, Revelry). They've been popping up around Portland with their seasonal-Northwest-meets-regional-Chinese food and drinks for the better part of two years now, with Connor behind the wok and David behind the bar.
Perhaps you visited Mama Huhu, their 3-month-long pop up in the Renata parking lot this summer? It was part Asian night market, part parking lot party, part small business generator and a whole lotta fun. Along with a bevy of friends and guest chefs, they served up an inspired and often irreverent rotating menu that might include mall chicken, bacon and ramp kimchi dumplings, a Szechuan seafood boil and classic fried rice and noodle dishes gussied up with peak-of-season local produce, along with strawberry shortcake soju shots and Dickel in a Box--a Dickel rye cocktail served in a Chinese takeout box.
If you didn't make it to Mama Huhu, don't dispair. David and Connor will be bringing their signature clever cocktails, firecracker flavors and #parkinglotvibes with them to Tournant. Scroll down for for a peek at their fantastic menu! As usual, we'll be providing our fresh NW oyster service. It's going to be an East meets Pacific Northwest fest that you don't want to miss!
No reservations necessary, just drop by from 5-9pm for restaurant-style seating (though we suggest arriving early). Hope to see you at the table, friends!
