Here is the press release –
The Parish restaurant opened in May of 2012 offering Farm Direct Oysters and true Southern cuisine informed by the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. The Parish is now closed.
This sale will allow us to return to EaT: An Oyster Bar one of the first restaurants in decades to offer Farm Direct Oysters in Portland, combined with farm direct produce EaT: An Oyster Bar has been in the forefront of the sea change of Portland restaurants over the past 8 years. Anson Mills heirloom grits and many other heirloom beans & grains have been used throughout our time on N Williams Ave, and The Pearl, presenting updated interpretations on classic southern cuisine, much like Sean Brock has done with Husk.
We will focus on a revised menu and a re-fashioned Craft Cocktail list. We’ll also formulate a new Happy Hour Menu, which already includes the best deal on Farm Direct Oysters in the city, 6 for $8, look for specials coming up featuring $1 Oysters. As the N Williams neighborhood changes EaT would like to continue offering a high quality experience.
Thank you Portland for all the support offered to The Parish and thank you for all of the continued support of EaT: An Oyster Bar, we hope to see you all in the near future to enjoy some of our truly fine Southern Cuisine crafted by Ethan Powell, one of the most respected chefs in Portland for the last 12 years from Andina, to the Everett St. Bistro, to EaT: An Oyster Bar.
Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!
