Restaurant Visit: Olympic Provisions in Portland, Oregon

June 2, 2011

Located in the historic Olympic Mills Commerce Center, a restored cereal mill in Portland’s lower Southeast Industrial neighborhood, Olympic Provisions has been garnering accolades for its local American charcuterie ever since it opened in 2009. When owners Martin Schwartz, Nate Tilden, Tyler Gaston, and salumist Elias Cairo first embarked on the project, they armed themselves with power tools and set to work transforming the place under the guidance of designer Patricia Gardener. Enlisting the help of family and friends, the four of them transformed the warehouse space into a restaurant and deli with its own on-site meat curing facility. A new location has just opened on the Westside: Olympic Provisions Northwest at 1632 NW Thurman Street.
