It's Friday and the weather is uhh-may-zing. Good reasons to go out tonight. But here's the best one—there's a pretty solid rumor going around that Brickhouse will open tonight in the old Firehall. Though we couldn't confirm in person, the restaurant's voicemail message says it's happening. New lounge menu plus the best steaks in town according to Bend Source readers.
Oscar filet at Brickhouse, now located downtown at the old Firehall, 5 NW Minnesota Ave.
Have you had an Oscar filet with Dungeness crab at Brickhouse, because it's it's a singular experience in Bend. Wait, that's right, Caldera Grille does have that benedict with the Dungeness crab and the beef medallions, but we're pretty sure it's just not quite the same. This change likely means that the former location of the Bend Brickhouse, at 803 SW Industrial Way will no longer be open. Stay tuned for future issues of the Source for all the details. If you want to avoid what will likely be a scene at Brickhouse, we recommend trotting just a block up Lava Road to The Jackelope Grill. The outdoor courtyard there opens for the season tonight and it's another lovely spot to spend a warm spring evening.
