Welcome to The Country Cat
Dinner House & Bar
We serve up a made-from-scratch dining experience that embodies American craft cooking. Adam and Jackie Sappington, the husband-and-wife chef owners of The Country Cat, have created a menu that reflects the ever-changing culinary landscape of American heritage cuisine, featuring classic dishes from Adam’s Midwest country upbringing recreated with Northwest style and ingredients. Their dedication to seasonality means a majority of their produce is hand-picked from the local farmer’s market. Adam, a James Beard Award semi-finalist the past three years, is arguably Portland’s top chef/butcher composing a variety of rotating dishes to highlight every part of the animals he breaks down weekly in his back kitchen. Jackie is a talented pastry chef creating nostalgic delights filled with sophisticated flavors made from the Northwest’s seasonal bounty. The cozy and soulful restaurant is nestled in Southeast Portland’s Montavilla neighborhood, reminiscent of Adam’s hometown in Missouri, allowing the duo to foster a dining environment that serves the community first.
