It was a lovely warm September day so we ate outside at a sidewalk table. Our server was efficient and attentive but thankfully did not hover. Excellent mussels (though served in too much weak broth), a tasty beet salad with pistachios, and a chocolate pot...More

I love Portland and don't get nearly enough time here. I ran across this restaurant while driving "over the hill" on my way to a place that now counts as second tier to Blue Spoon. I had consumed probably one too many scotches before arrival....More
