Foster Burger Open

I’ve been off the grid for a couple of weeks, which was lovely. No tweets, no updates, no posts, no check-ins, not much of anything really. Just me, my new book Far Flung and Well Fed: The Food Writing of R.W. Apple, Jr., and a bottle of champagne. Okay, a few bottles.

Which is my excuse for not posting this press release sooner. 


Foster Burger, 5339 SE Foster Road, Portland, 97206, (503) 775-2077, opens its doors tonight.

Chef Daniel Mondok (Sel Gris Restaurant and James Beard Nominee) has put together a short and sweet menu (see attached) featuring house ground burgers, hand cut fries, meal size salads and milkshakes.  Foster Burger will be open for seven consecutive days (December 29th to January 4th) and then will phase into its normal opening schedule:

Thursday to Monday –  Open 5pm to 11pm

Open until midnight on Friday and Saturday

Closed Tuesday and Wednesday

Here is the menu, in case you want to torment yourself reading it while eating your healthy New Year’s Resolution dinner of lettuce leaf-wrapped tofu.
