In the fall of 2011 The Woodsman Tavern opened on upper SE Division Street in Portland, Oregon. Inspired by the neighborhood support for his original Stumptown café located just next door, Duane Sorenson wanted to open a gathering place for good food, good drink and good company that felt like it had always been there.
Part old school tavern, part big city restaurant, The Woodsman pays homage to the great Pacific NW not only in its name, but also in its support of the bounty that exists in this region. Chef Jason Barwikowski, alum of Clyde Common and Olympic Provisions, cooks American fare with traditional European influences centered around a charcoal fired Josper oven using the best ingredients available from local and artisanal purveyors.
The bar is anchored by fourteen rotating taps and a extensive cocktail list. The wine list features an “old world” selection of bottles from Europe and the NW as well as a reserve list.
The Woodsman serves dinner seven nights a week and will be adding brunch service soon. Feel free to make a reservation or stop by at your leisure. We look forward to seeing you soon.
