Chef and restaurateur David Machado ventures into Portland's Pearl District. The acclaimed Northwest chef’s latest project is adjacent the newly built Hampton Inn & Suites in a prime corner location.
Tanner Creek Tavern is named for the small tributary that runs beneath the Pearl District and flows into the Willamette River near the Broadway Bridge. Daniel Lownsdale, an early Portland settler and one of Portland's founders, built a tannery along the creek in 1845. The rabbit in the logo is a direct nod to the tannery and the rich history of Portland's West Hills and one-time warehouse district.
