Epif, the first vegetarian restaurant inspired by the Andes Region of South America will be opening October 30th! Nicolle and Jose brought their expertise from their restaurant in Valparaiaso Chile to Portland. After two years of designing, planning and building, the restaurant has come together. The beautiful location, which was built in their garden, mixes South America with Portland craftsmanship, creating a unique ambiance.
Their chef, Daniel, a friend from their time in Chile, has traveled to Portland to bring authentic recipes with a vegetarian twist. The restaurant will also feature a pisco bar. Pisco is a clear brandy that is very popular in both Chile and Peru. The restaurant looks forward to bringing pisco classics along with Portland-inspired pisco cocktails.
