Sustainable Cuisine in Downtown Portland

Chef Kyle Rourke and the Red Star Tavern & Roast House staff are committed to environmental and social responsibility while offering our customers the very best service, food and libations. From developing supportive relationships with local Portland farmers to recycling everything possible, we are steadfastly dedicated to a greener future. Our eco-friendly practices translate directly to the table for flavorful food of the highest integrity.

A proud proponent of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants EarthCare program, Red Star's practices include:

  • All kitchen grease and excess cooking oils are recycled into bio-diesel fuel.

  • Chef Rourke's dishes feature seasonal organic and local ingredients.

  • All beef is source-verified 100% Angus and tested to be BSE-free.

  • When selecting seafood, Chef Rourke's adheres to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program standards.

  • Red Star serves organic coffee, tea and juices.

  • Our wine list includes superb organic and biodynamic selections.

  • We use low-flow dishwashing spray valves and faucet aerators in bathrooms and hand-wash stations.

  • Red Star uses only biodegradable detergents and cleaning supplies.

  • Energy efficient lighting is used in kitchen areas, and low-energy LED lighting is used for all exit lights.

  • Red Star recycles all paper, cardboard, glass, wood, plastic and aluminum products, and does not use Styrofoam for any purpose.

  • All take-out containers and utensils are biodegradable and made from unbleached, recycled content.

  • All menus are printed on recycled paper with soy ink wherever possible.

  • Red Star and the adjacent Hotel Monaco Portland are officially Green Seal™ Silver Certified, meaning we meet a rigorous set of environmental standards designed to reduce impact on the environment and human health.
