Jason Barwikowski

The Woodsman Tavern - Portland, OR

After earning his culinary chops at Clyde Common and Olympic Provisions, Jason Barwikowski now helms the kitchen at the Woodsman Tavern, a Portland eatery known for its European-inflected American fare sourced from local and artisanal purveyors. Complemented by the striking pairings chosen by wine director Carly Laws, this tantalizing menu pays homage to the rich terroir of the Pacific Northwest.
