Brickhouse and Broken Top Make Wine Spectator List
Bend may be best known for beer, but at least two local establishments are making a name for themselves in the wine world. Broken Top Club Restaurant and Brickhouse on Minnesota are both named in Wine Spectator's August issue, which hits newsstands on July 19. The issue includes the nationally-distributed magazine's 2016 Restaurant Awards, which highlight restaurants around the world that offer the best wine selections. Brickhouse first made the list in 2011, and Broken Top has been on the list since 2013. To find out who else made the list, visit the searchable database at restaurants.winespectator.com.
Beach Hut Deli Surfs Into Downtown Bend
Located in the space formerly occupied by Cobalt, Dojo, The Downtowner, and Bendistillery's Tasting Room, Beach Hut Deli is bringing sandwiches—the universally pleasurable, portable meal—back to Brooks Street. This the first out-of-state spot for the California-based franchise.
The menu is exactly what you would expect from a bear-state eatery called Beach Hut Deli. Think lots of avocado and menu items named Malibu, Beach Bikini, and Haole Cheese Steak. A prime example is The Sunburn, featuring grilled chicken, Frank's Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce, Monterey Jack cheese, onions, bacon, lettuce and buttermilk ranch dressing on a toasted roll. The indoor-outdoor restaurant also offers classic sandwiches, such as turkey and cheese or roast beef, and a selection of salads. Breakfast sandwiches are available during morning hours.
Beach Hut Deli is located at 852 NW Brooks St. in downtown Bend. Hours are 9am to 8pm Monday through Saturday and 10am to 6pm on Sunday. Price range: $7-$17.
