Beaverton Restaurant Week
September 26 – October 6, 2019
Beaverton Restaurant Week returns for its 3rd year, and this year it’s bigger and better than ever! We’re celebrating the delicious independent restaurants in downtown Beaverton, and we invite you to discover the diverse selection of restaurants during the week. For Beaverton Restaurant Week only, more than 40 participating restaurants will offer a special dish that normally isn’t on the menu, alongside their normal menus.
Downtown Beaverton is becoming the Tualatin Valley’s premier dining destination with nearly 60 restaurants within walking distance of the Beaverton Central MAX station. Newcomers like Ex Novo Pizza, Big’s Chicken, First Street Taqueria and Syndicate Wine Bar have recently opened within a single block of Watson Avenue, where a “restaurant row” is emerging. Several more restaurants are expected to open in this area in the coming year.
We are excited that several new restaurants are participating this year:
Ex Novo Brewing Company
Another new eatery in Beaverton is the Portland-based Ex Novo Brewing Company. It opened in February of this year and has been catering to capacity crowds ever since. The brewery is known for its hop-forward, malt-forward and sour craft beers, which pair well with the Detroit-style pizza at this location.
First Street Taqueria
First Street Taqueria is a modern taqueria featuring authentic Mexican flavors with Northwest ingredients. Sit back and enjoy tacos prepared with house-made tortillas, while imbibing cocktails made with one of the 30 hand-selected Tequilas. Sip on a barrel-aged anejo or a tasty margarita.
Big’s Chicken is a venture from four well-known local chefs, including Chef Ben Bettinger, winner of the season 22 of the Food Network’s competitive cooking series “Chopped.” The restaurant’s specialty is Alabama-style chicken. The chicken is smoked then slathered in a white barbecue sauce that they like to call “white gold.” Enjoy the perfectly crisped chicken, which is best enjoyed alongside their house-made coleslaw and signature Jo-Jos.
Karver Sandwich Bar
Karver Sandwich Bar is the newest addition to the LaScala Food Hall, and also is a first-time participant in this year’s restaurant week. This craft sandwich bar offers scratch-made sandwiches, soups, salads and deserts, as well as a selection of local beer and wines.
Du Kuh Bee
New to Beaverton Restaurant Week, but not to locals, Du Kuh Bee Restaurant is one of Beaverton’s most venerable and acclaimed restaurants. Du Kuh Bee features Chinese and Korean food with house made, hand-pulled noodles, dumplings and other specialties. This small restaurant fills up fast, so you know this may be one that may include a wait to get in (trust us, the wait is worth it).
Again this year, the carts in Beaverton’s first food cart pod, BG’s Food Cartel will be joining in on the restaurant week action this year. BG’s has several new carts this year, such as the Fying Scotsman, fish and chips; Avenue St. Charles, New Orleans cuisine; and Front Porch, southern cooking. BG’s is a popular pet-friendly spot, located just steps from the Beaverton Round and the MAX light rail, and features more than two dozen food carts with cuisine from all over the globe.
Beaverton Restaurant Week eaters will also have the chance to dine out for free by sharing pictures of their meals on Instagram. Simply snap a photo from September 26 through October 6 at one of the participating restaurants and tag it #BeavertonRestaurantWeek for the opportunity to win a nightly drawing for a $25 restaurant gift card.
