Brooklyn has a new restaurant in a familiar street location -- and it is actually right side up, despite its name

RITA A. LEONARD - Upside Down restaurant owner Maria Hernandez, left, chats with Brooklyn neighbors Alan Blood and Rhea Stadick. Her new dining spot is open for lunch and dinner every day but Tuesday. "Upside Down", a new family restaurant, opened in March at 3318 S.E. Milwaukie Avenue, in the heart of the Brooklyn neighborhood. Following a series of smaller food-cart eateries at the site, owners Maria Hernandez and Oswaldo Bibiano worked for six months to remodel, and more than double the size of, the business structure. It now accommodates thirty diners indoors and twenty more outdoors, at patio tables.

The menu features Mexican and comfort foods, and a beer garden with thirty taps of local beers. So far, favorite menu choices are reported as the "Brooklyn Sandwich" (roast pork and sides), the "Upside Down Burger" (beef, cheese, and bacon), and the "Pio Pio Burrito" (sautéed onions, rice, cheese, pinto beans, and meat). "We also do Take-Out," assures Maria.

Days open and the hours of business are Wednesdays through Mondays, 11 a.m. till 10 p.m.; closed Tuesdays. Customers are already reported as praising the food, salsa, and vegetarian options. The new business has four employees. Call 971/373-8607 if you'd like more information.
