About Radar Restaurant
Radar Restaurant is named after Skip Radar Tollefsen -- Artist, Pirate, Restaurateur, Dad.
Radar is a one-of-a-kind neighborhood gem owned by husband and wife team Chef Jonathan Berube and Lily Tollefsen that combines Mid-Atlantic and American bistro cuisine with responsibly sourced ingredients from Oregon’s bounty. The full-service restaurant and bar located on bustling Mississippi Avenue in Portland, Oregon offers a menu that is unique and approachable, inspired by Lily and Jonathan’s vast East and West Coast culinary experiences. The outstanding beverage program was designed by Lily and in collaboration with her longtime friend Alex Day of Death & Co. in New York. Radar houses an entirely open kitchen where guests are offered a chance to watch the chef in action. Radar prides itself on creating an environment where everyone is welcome, feels comfortable and at home. We look forward to hosting you and your guests soon!
"Radar’s glowing, raw-brick space, dominated by an open kitchen tucked behind a swooping bar counter, easily reels in neighbors, strolling couples, and restaurant industry vets off the street. The maritime-tinged spot, run by husband-and-wife team Jonathan Berube and Lily Tollefsen, keeps its catch by serving as a relaxed-but-classy hideaway on a street that’s become increasingly rambunctious. Berube runs the kitchen, mingling strong Scandinavian influences with Northwest twists and Northeast seafood (they fly in smoked bluefish weekly for pâté) while Tollefsen mans the bar, which boasts top-notch drinks she dreamed up with a childhood friend, national cocktail superstar Alex Day (Death and Company in New York and LA’s Honeycut). The European Union—a heady blend of Hayman’s Old Tom gin, Busnel calvados, sweet vermouth, Strega, and bitters—is as complex as its namesake’s politics, and that Night Owl is one of our fave bourbon drinks in town." - Portland's Best Bars - Portland Monthly Magazine
