What’s New for October

New Fall Menu Items
October brings Portland wind and rain, but it also brings Elephants Delicatessen’s seasonal menu change, sure to keep you warm and snug. Our shepherd’s pie is back at our brick oven locations, while our grills have started turning out the Uptown Burger with porcini steak sauce – the single greatest culinary invention of all time. Our bakery and baristas, like Charlie Brown, have been waiting all year long for the Great Pumpkin. Enjoy the fruits of their labors with our pumpkin chocolate chip muffin, pumpkin cheesecake, and pumpkin spice latte. And as always, we’ve got new soups to warm your tummies… our classics are joined this month by corn chowder and squash and yellow split pea. Come on by and fall into flavor.

Wine of the Month
A Pinot lover’s wine, Love & Squalor’s ‘Garageland’ remains one of Willamette Valley’s stunners, offering an amazing quality-to-price ratio. Matt Berson is one of our favorite small-production winemakers in Oregon and this Pinot colorfully illustrates why. Garageland’s ripe cherry-berry fruit, earthy notes and supple tannins will please everyone, from Esmé to Holden.

Drop by NW 22nd or Corbett and fall in love with squalor.

They’re Creepy and They’re Kooky…
October scares up our famous Halloween Decorations. You’ll find ghouls, ghosts, and goblins popping up on everything from cupcakes and candy to napkins and display pieces. Our Halloween candy display is packed with unique treats – look for more than just the ubiquitous candy corn. Scare up some chocolates and ghoulish gummies instead. Elephants carries all the tricks and treats necessary to make your Halloween party frighteningly stylish.
