While I have not eaten at this little restaurant (only because I rarely go out to eat), I have heard a number of people rave about the food, so I am most happy to make the Village Hut a topic here. I stopped to look because I was enticed by its colors on this mid-winter afternoon, as well as its unique design. Southwest Portland is sprinkled with oddly-shaped little buildings that seem to have been built specifically for oddly-shaped leftover little parcels of land, and this was one of them. Just as I walked by, a friendly young man stepped outside to put some chicken on the grill, so I paused for a few pictures.
There are several areas (both indoors and out) to sit down and eat, such as this small outdoor deck. I thought about the person who looked at this little plot of ground that might typically contain a piece of shrubbery, and envisioned its greater potential. S/he transformed it into a cozy, private outdoor dining room. Another bit of place-making in Southwest Portland.
The specials were on two boards by the front door, and there were more inside.
