The food at Restaurant Eugene has become brighter, bolder and more accessible. Chef Linton Hopkins is now on par with the absolute best chefs in the Southeast. Rather than choose the traditional appetizer and entree, guests are presented with a list of around 30 small plates organized under the headings of fish, vegetables, and meat & game. Hopkins' love for ingredients is front and center. The crisp kale is fried just long enough to turn the leaves into shattering chips of musky, smoky flavor with a refreshingly bitter aftertaste. Other dishes are all about showcasing the freshness of the season.
Linton Hopkins' Restaurant Eugene unveils its new Friday feature: small plates in the salon space of the restaurant. Unwind on Fridays with a specially curated menu from executive chef Chris Edwards, accompanied by cocktails at happy hour prices.
