Etymology

Every dish has a story, every componet has a starting point. 

For us, bringing those stories to your table, no matter how simple or how complex they might be, has always been the greater purpose of our establishments. 

Seasonality

There are many regions throughout Mexico where the people still live off of the land. The flavors of their food change depending on what is available to them. 

For us, its become the driving force behind the way we plan and execute our menus; support our local producers, and work with what this land can give us, within its season. 

Culture

Make the food our mothers would be proud of. 

Amaranto is a gift to the people who have given us so much. Not just our immediate ancestors from Mexico, but also the people who cultivated the land before the arrival of Spaniards. The  civilizations who have given us corn and figured out the nixtamalization of it all. 
 

Every night we celebrate them and their stories in the only way we know how. 
 

About

Amaranto

Traditional Mexican Cuisine inspired by seasonality.

That is the intention of this space: to create a venue that not only celebrates the culinary traditions of Mexico, but does it with respect to the availability of the surrounding bounty.
 

Amaranto is the third restaurant by the Republica & Co. hospitality group. What sets it apart from República & Lilia is the approachability and familiarity of its menu. Dishes like tetelas, quesadillas and tlayudas are part of the intentionality behind our Maiz program. 

Five nights a week, the team at Amaranto brings you a mix of the old and new classics, along with its stories of etymology. Whether at the chef’s counter or at a more intimate table along the dining room, you can experience the entire menu via our Dinner for Two.

This here

is truly what sets us apart.

Maiz

Ancestral Varietals

The most important component in our  kitchen. Different varietals  imported directly from regions of Mexico like Tlaxcala and Oaxaca. 
Once at our door, we nixtamilize and convert it to masa, bringing you the very best maiz dishes in this city. 

Mexican Spirits

Beyond Margaritas & Tequila

Located adjacent to Bar Comala, you will not find a more complete collection of Spirits and Liqueurs from Mexico in the region; Gin, Rum, Tequila, Whiskey, Amaro, and of course Mezcal. 
From rare and beautiful cocktails to Mezcal education pairings.

The Agave program here is certainly one of the best in the country!

PNW Seasonality

Sourced locally

We work with the seasons! 
Inspired by the stories of the people living in the outskirts of the big cities in Mexico. 
Because of our long-standing relationships with local producers and growers, we can afford to bring you something new, just about every time you walk through our doors.

De Portland
al Mundo

For some, this food might appear unfamiliar. After all, it doesn't fit the mold of people's perception of what Mexican cuisine is supposed to be and/or taste like.

For us, it's about the fundamentals. If you understand the classics, and you work with components that are near you to recreate those classics, the quality of your food along with its familiarity become one that defies the way you ever perceived this cuisine in the first place.
