Sunshine Tavern Restaurant Review

: You might not associate a "tavern" with a light, airy place where children run around. Nor would you associate chef Jenn Louis, whose other restaurant is Lincoln, with poutine and corn dogs. These contradictions not only exist but thrive at this SE Portland neighborhood hangout. The menu ranges through such guilty pleasures as the above-mentioned poutine and corn dogs, plus fried chicken and waffles, meatball subs, and a fried chicken sandwich. Sometimes you'll find upscale interlopers on the menu such as duck eggs (served with pimento cheese) or a radicchio and fennel salad accented with chicken, dates and almonds. Kids will find plenty of items they like to eat, while vintage shuffleboard and arcade games add to the charm.
