Tasty Tuesday – Portland Peeps try 2nd Story (P.S. Happy National Burger Day!)

Hey Guys, so I have been super swamped, once again, but I wanted to bring you something yummy and tasty today because after all it is Tasty Tuesday! And to top it off, it’s also National Burger Day, so I wanted to feature a restaurant that rocked my world with an amazing burger! For all of those that live in Portland, you must try 2nd Story, this place is A-MAZ-ING!! It’ s one of those places that often is over looked and many often say, “Where? What is this place? Never heard of it”. Well, I am here to change that, because this place does not disappoint. From the super friendly, patient and educated staff to the unique tapas style cuisine, it’s an all encompassing culinary experience.

When you first walk through the doors, it can be confusing because you think it might be a coffee shop, but you have to go up the steps. It’s located on the “2nd Story” of an old house (hence the name;). The dining room is rather small and probably can hold about 50 max, and that is bursting at it’s seams! The room is dimly lit with a cozy wood décor and literally feels like you are in someone’s house. 2nd Story was voted best date spot in 2012 by the Portland Tribune and I assure you, this award is well deserved. I yelped for Romantic restaurants for a Valentine’s Night out and “romantic” it sure was! We ordered multiple dishes from burgers to a polenta entrée and each was tastier than the next. Chef Erin McBride, formerly of Higgins, rotates the menu according to seasonal ingredients and this is yet another reason why I just adore this spot!
