THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sunshine Tavern Restaurant Review

: Contradictions not only exist but thrive at this SE Portland neighborhood hangout. Here, a "tavern" is a light, airy (yes, sunshiny) place where children run around playing shuffleboard and vintage video arcade games. And associate chef Jenn Louis, whose other restaurant is Lincoln, puts a trendy stamp on poutine and corn dogs. You'll find fried chicken and waffles (with an optional "spicy liqueur"), kimchi pancakes with fried eggs, a delicata squash pizza, and burgers topped with pork belly, kimchi and pickled chiles. Or go light with a radicchio and fennel salad with chicken, dates, almonds and garlic toast. Kids and others will enjoy the house-made sodas, although the kimchi flavor might prove a stretch. Soft-serve ice cream makes a delectable dessert. Happy hour is an ideal time to sample small plates in the $4-$6 range (think ham and Swiss panino and crispy oysters) and the extensive beer menu.
