Our Story

Welcome to our house, a gathering space filled with the history of former colleagues making a comeback.

Chef Michael Kessler, General Manager Faye Crosswhite, and Event Director Katie Grosz met while working together at PLAZA DEL TORO, formerly under the Tasty & Toro Bravo Restaurant Inc umbrella.

In early Spring of 2021, Faye and Mike had the opportunity to partner with Pastry Chef Katherine Benvenuti to own the rights to the former Tasty brand and opened up Tasty in Lake Oswego’s Mercato Grove. Our desire was to create a venue to host our own house-promoted events as well as private dinners for our clients.

We wanted to work with Katie again and felt like an event space was a no-brainer. Our main focus with House of Tasty is to bring the community back together and create a space where we can gather and celebrate in our beloved Southeast Portland neighborhood.
