Very rarely do you eat dinner out and think, “Wow, I can’t believe how light and refreshed I feel.” But that’s exactly what happens when you go to Tusk. This Middle Eastern/Mediterranean spot on East Burnside serves technicolor plates of seasonal vegetables, fruits, and grains, along with really great hummus and other dips you’ll want to eat with their homemade flatbread. If you need some extra protein, you can add some grilled chicken or lamb and pork skewers to round things out. Besides the great food, Tusk also serves really interesting cocktails, and those two things combined make this the first place you should check out during your next visit.
