Bazi Bierbrasserie, perhaps Portland’s only Belgian-centric and European-inspired bier bar and restaurant, is freshening up its menu for fall and winter with the assistance of recently hired Head Chef Phillip Rider, a Veritable Quandary and Marriott Waterfront alum.
Here are some of the new menu highlights from the proprietors:
Flemish Stew – traditional stew from the Flanders region of Belgium consisting of chuck meat with carrots, onions, celery, and dark beer over creamy polenta
Merguez Sausage and Kale – pork and lamb sausage, polenta, and kale in a maple-balsamic reduction
Velgie Burger – housemade lentil veggie patty, greens with secret sauce, fried leeks served in a Fleur de Lis potato bun
Some of the classics like the Stoemp (Belgian’s version of Shepherd’s pie), Moules de Blonde and Frites (mussels and fries in a blonde beer sauce), as well as the Chutney Burger (1/2 lb Fulton Farm meat patty with bacon and house-made chutney marmalade) will remain on the menu as classics. And, of course, those Truffle Frites can still be served with the secret Curry Mayo.
The entire food menu is available from open to close, and smaller versions of these dishes are also available during the daily Happy Hour (3-7 PM) and Late Night (10 PM to close). Happy Hour food prices range from $3-8 and regular priced fooditems from $4-14. Our kitchen practices are to source local whenever possible.
Bazi Bierbrasserie is located in the heart of Hawthorne, just south on SE 32ndAve. A full service bar, Bazi brings centuries of brewing expertise under one roof by pouring domestic and imported Belgian craft beers. Wine and a premium liquor selection compliment many along with signature cocktails. The food menu blends a heritage influenced by the French, Dutch and German. Just like the European tradition, Bazi embraces all local sport teams and encourages enthusiasts to gather together to cheer for your local team on a 114” HDTV!
