Brian Poor - Portland City Grill, Portland

Brian Poor grew up in the farm land of eastern Washington state. The sharing of meals around the family table helped inspire his interest in food. That interest took him to culinary school and then out to seek his fortune as a chef. He worked in some of Seattle’s coolest restaurants, which resulted in a performance at the James Beard House in New York City. Brian also spent seven years behind the microphone with his foodtalk show The Poor Man’s Kitchen on Seattle’s KOMO Newsradio. Today, as director of culinary for Portland City Grill, one of the West Coast’s busiest restaurants, he creates new and exciting menu items featuring local, sustainable ingredients.
