Bernie's Southern Bistro


I remember going to Bernie's 8 years ago and loving it, so when I moved back to Portland, I was anxious to go back.  Not much has changed at Bernie's, the neighborhood has changed, but the food hasn't changed a bit, its still very tasty.  So if you want some good old southern food that is classed up a bit, Bernie's is the place to go.  OK, so once you are there you must try the Hush Puppies, Fried Pickles, Fried Okra, Crawfish Cakes, Oysters and Fried Chicken, yes I know, everything is fried, well that's how we do it in the South, eat Salad for a week and you should be OK.  The Happy Hour Menu at Bernie's kicks ass too, not only do they have great drinks, but they have a $3.00 food menu that cant be beat, Po Boy, Fried Green Tomatoes, Sweet Potato Fries, Hush Puppies and Red Beans and Rice are all Three Bucks, damn man!  This isn't the food that you will find at my Grandma's house, this is the food that you will find at a hip spot in Buckhead while sipping a nice glass of Bourbon in Atlanta.
