Toro Bravo Inc’s “Third n Tasty” to Open in Atticus Hotel in 2018
The Toro Bravo Inc Restaurant Management & Design Group presents a new restaurant from chef and restaurateur John Gorham inside the new Atticus Hotel in historic downtown McMinnville opening in Spring 2018.
Third n Tasty is the third “Tasty” restaurant from Toro Bravo Inc, preceded by Tasty n Sons and Tasty n Alder restaurants in Portland. Third n Tasty—playing off the fact it’s both the third restaurant in Gorham’sTasty series and will be just off iconic Third Street in Historic Downtown McMinnville—will offer global favorites drawing from Tasty n Sons’ brunch menu and Tasty n Alder’s dinner menu.
“McMinnville is the first city outside of Portland to which we’ve expanded our Tasty program. Since McMinnville sits in the heart of Oregon wine country, we know we can both source our ingredients from local area producers, and have an audience of locals and international travelers who will appreciate our unique dining options. We’re excited to be a part of McMinnville’s continuing evolution as an international culinary destination,” said John Gorham.
“With Tasty n Sons dinner program we focus on regional Americana,” Gorham continued. “With Tasty n Alder we have influences of steakhouses from around the world, and with the Third n Tasty dinner concept, we want to focus on the cuisines of the great wine regions of the world. We’re going to bring in wine country’s first Josper Oven from Spain to charcoal-broil local steaks.”
Third n Tasty will also feature a happy hour menu, in-room dining at the Atticus Hotel, as well as wine and cocktail service in the lobby. The wine program will feature a strong showing of Willamette Valley wines while also celebrating classic Old World wines from France, Italy, and Spain. The bar program will be centered around the classic cocktails you’d find in great hotels around the world.
“The heart and soul of a Tasty restaurant is fun, and the new luxury and independently-owned Atticus hotel will be the perfect complement to our Tasty dining experience. We can’t think of a better place to expand our brand,” said Gorham.
