Located in Edgefield's main lodge, the Black Rabbit is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fantastic murals tracing the history of Edgefield and the Columbia River Gorge line the walls, and intimate booths encourage you to linger over a fine meal. Guests can choose from an innovative menu of Northwest cuisine and traditional favorites, as well as an expansive list of regional and local wines.
As of 2013, the Black Rabbit kitchen is run by executive chef Kenny Giambalvo, previously of Portland’s highly acclaimed Pazzo and Bluehour restaurants. Giambalvo will collaborate with Edgefield’s onsite winery, distillery and brewery both in his menus and for special events, comparing the bountiful setting to being “like a kid in a candy store.” The direct partnership between the kitchens and the McMenamins gardeners, brewers, distillers and winemakers was an opportunity that Giambalvo felt he couldn’t pass up.
The kitchen uses seasonal ingredients from Edgefield's own gardens, grown using organic methods – herbs, vegetables, fruits and flowers that flourish throughout the property's 74 acres. The chef and his staff create excellent meals by using the finest local, organic and sustainable ingredients whenever possible. Be sure to ask your server about daily specials! But save room for one of our housemade desserts, accompanied by a cup of McMenamins' own roasted coffee.
In the adjacent Black Rabbit Bar, petite tables for two line walls of rich mahogany, and the 30-foot bar reaches through a small nook and around the corner. Take your pick from a selection of McMenamins' own handcrafted ales, brewed onsite just 50-yards from the bar, as well as from an expanded selection of imported and domestic bottled beers. Seasonal brews, Edgefield wines and regional and international wines and spirits augment the list along with a hearty bar menu.
