Welcome to The Picnic House!
In 2011, Aaron & Jessica Grimmer opened their first venture, Picnic House, in the nearly century-old lobby of the original Heathman Hotel located in the heart of downtown Portland, OR. The interior boasts the original hand-tiled floor and rich wood interior from its construction in the 1920s. Executive Chef Casey Gipson utilizes classic French techniques to prepare creative dishes that playfully reference the nostalgic comfort foods of childhood. Picnic House offers a comprehensive New World/Old World wine selection, local microbrews on draught, and a seasonal craft cocktail menu developed by bar manager Matthew Gilbert.
Reservations are recommended via Open Table (see reservation widget below), and we frequently host both private and semi-private events, ranging from weddings to holiday office parties.
