The Picnic House, opened in 2012 by Portland restaurateurs Aaron and Jessica Grimmer across the street from the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, has become one of the staples of downtown Portland’s flourishing culinary scene, welcoming guests to enjoy its seasonal, picnic-inspired New American cuisine, historic space, and heartfelt hospitality. The lunch menu consists of a seasonal rotation of artisan sandwiches, inspired salads, and housemade soups, while the Executive Chef Jessica Grimmer's dinner program adds curated meat & cheese boards and bright, savory grilled offerings to the mix. The Grand Room of The Picnic House sits in the nearly century-old lobby of the original Heathman Hotel and retains the original hand-tiled floor and fluted wood columns.
Aaron & Jessica opened The Picnic House as their first full-service restaurant venture in the summer of 2012. Aaron heads up operations, and Jessica heads up culinary as the Executive Chef. In the past five years, they've added Barlow Artisanal Bar and High Noon Food & Drink to their growing group of Portland restaurants, in addition to co-creating and starring in the Vimeo Staff Pick-awarded series Last Meal.
