Hallelujah! Trader Vic Returns
With New Portland Opening
Portland -- A delightful taste experience from our decadent past
the Tuesday, July 26 opening of Trader Vic's on the edge
of Portland's Pearl district at
1203 NW Glisan. Vic Bergeron created the Trader Vic
restaurant chain back in 1937 in San
Francisco. A Seattle outpost opened in Seattle's Benjamin
Franklin Hotel during our
days at University of Washington and an Oregon site was opened
in 1959 at the Benson
Hotel, where it titillated tastebuds until 1996.
investors just announced its restoration, with no straying
away from its original South Seas decor and Polynesian-themed food and
cocktail offerings. Yes, there will be a wood-fired clay oven to
BBQ cuts of Steak & Lamb...and Rum will be mixed with
tropical juices for unique cocktail offerings, including the
Bowl shared at a
group table with separate straws for each imbiber.
Trust me, folks, this
is the ultimate date experience that has been gone too long
from the scene.
