Beast beats any brunch I've had in a very long time.
It's not very often that I have a meal where I find myself saying "wow" after every bite of every dish, but it happened while having brunch here. It was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had anywhere, including the Bay Area.
We were lucky to get reservations for Sunday brunch. There are only two seatings on Sunday (10am & noon) and dinner happens Wed-Sat. Brunch is a $28 (yes, ONLY $28!) four course pre-fixe meal, with no substitutions. So, if you're vegan or vegetarian, this is unfortunately not the place for you. There are only two communal tables which seat about 25 people total and everyone gets served at the same time. From my seat against the wall, I had a great view of Chef Naomi and her sous chef in the open kitchen, so I was basically watching magic happen.
The phenomenal meal consisted of incredibly fresh ingredients, with all the veggies just picked up from the farmer's market.Recommended for:Foodies

**BEST BRUNCH DEAL IN PORTLAND**
I dedicate my 600th review to the Beast.
Why? Bc it was OMFG good, that's why.
The Beast stole my culinary heart in Portland.
We made reservations for Sunday brunch at noon. We were seated upon arrival and I ordered a cup of Stumptown french-pressed Joe.
No menu substitutions. I like that French attitude. Take me as-is or leave me. :)
Had the following on the prix fixe menu ($28) including the wine paring ($20):
*Cherry Clafoutis with vanilla whipped cream & maple glazed bacon
Tasted like a light cherry souffle with an amazing glazed bacon topping. Be careful of the cherries . . they were not pitted. Delicious starter.
*Beast Hash - Tails & Trotters pork shoulder, market potatoes, corn, zucchini & cherry tomatoes, poached egg & hollandaise
MY FAVE. Man oh man. The freshness of this dish was simply evident with every bite. Pork was tender and flavorful. Nicely done.
*Selection of Steve's Cheese, Gathering Together summer greens with aged Sauvignon Blanc vinaigrette, and champagne infused apricot
Holy crap, that apricot stole the show. It tasted like orange syruped candy. Freshest greens I have ever had. Man, Portland has it good.
*Chocolate Truffle Cake topped with rose geranium whipped cream and gold flakes.
The rose geranium infused with the whipped cream was heavenly. So French. So in love.
HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Beast for Sunday brunch.
One day, will return for dinner.
