Hours: Daily 11am-10pm
While I’m all about the fancy dinners with multiple courses, bottles of wine and table service (I mean, who doesn’t on occasion?!), that can only happen every so often. Most nights during the week, especially with this new crazy busy job, I just want something casual for dinner if I’m too lazy to cook for myself.
That is part 1 of why I was so excited about CHKCHK opening up just a few blocks from my place. A fast-casual, easy, fun restaurant with great food?! Heck yes. Seriously, the powers that be in the Pearl District, we need more places like that. No more $80 a person restaurants. We have enough. Definitely no more window shade stores. Bring on things like P’s & Q’s markets or Thrive Bowls, like North Portland has!
