My buddy Matthew recently opened up a new place in North Portland called Nepo 42 and the food is pretty damn good. It's not surprising that the food is tasty considering Matthews experience, he has been around for quite a while, from dishwasher to Executive Chef and everything in between. The catering company was rocking so he decided to open up shop at Killingsworth and 42nd.
Lunch, Dinner and Weekend Brunch is being served with a focus on making almost everything in house. The Brunch menu has plenty of classics like Biscuits & Gravy, Omelets, Eggs Benedict and French Toast, but also has some more interesting plates like Chicken & Waffles and Ribs with Eggs. The Lunch & Dinner menu is equally bad ass, a killer Burger with House Cut Fries, Chicken & Waffles with Bacon & Maple Sage Syrup and a House Salad with Fennel, Carrots, Orange & Fried Capers is what I tried and everything was excellent! Next time I'm going for the Ribs!
Nepo 42 is a great place, good food, good beers and a cool kitchen that is busting out some great food. The parking lot is small, but there is plenty of on street parking and a church right across the street with a ton of parking! Oh yea, did I mention the Mac & Cheese, go check it out!
