Portage House is the brainchild of chef Paul Skulas and Alex Tinker whose DOERS Group (Citizen 7, Parlour Pizza, and Commonwealth Tap) bring a wealth of knowledge in developing successful establishments.
Chef Skulas brings with him his experience of growing up in Northwest Ohio where he first fell in love with cooking under his mother's tutelage and later under James Beard Award-winner chef John Currence of City Grocery.
Portage House aims to deliver locally-sourced Indiana meat and produce and fresh seafood. The menu concept is simple, approachable midwestern-fare featuring fine country hams, whole fish, oysters and big steaks. The idea is to elevate those foods and flavors we're familiar with.
