Recently, people keep asking me if I'm still planning on being at Beaker and Flask or if I'm just temporary help at 50 Plates. For the record, my plan (and I don't see this changing) is to work at both establishments. I feel incredibly lucky to work with the bar staff at 50 Plates and its a great place to be. However, I'm not about to miss out on the opportunity to work with Kevin Ludwig at Beaker and Flask. I'm convinced that Kevin is the finest bartender in Portland, and one of the top mixologists in the country.
So there you have it. Straight from the horses mouth. I'm going to be a part of both restaurants. Hopefully that stops the rumors. Any questions, let me know. I'm happy to discuss anything related directly to my job duties at either place. Please don't ask me about things that chefs or owners should be discussing, because I simply won't answer. Thanks for reading.
