This is the most popular best real Portland restaurant in Town . . . a leader in the foodie revolution in Town. That said this is not a Michelin star type of place, and be prepared to shell out a good deal of dough. Make a reservation well in advance. Free parking off Commercial Street next to Hilton Garden Inn. The main dining room has an open kitchen, so there is a noise factor. It's also fun, interesting, and creates an energy and is part of the concept of the place/chef. Maybe not the best choice for a quiet romantic dinner? The back room is a bit more quiet, but also very dark. Bring a pen light to read the menu if needed (or ask for the main room when you make a reservation). Larger parties go to the back room. The menu has something for everyone. Plenty of fish, meat, shellfish, nice salads, but this isn't a place meant for vegeterians. The fois is fantastic. Pork loin is an old standby and it is hard to imagine a better version of the dish. Oysters = super. Everything is super fresh, the preparations let the ingredients shine. Sides are extra $$. Service is quick, friendly, and overall good. The desserts are first class, I recommend the tarte tatin or chocolate cakey stuff. A great Portland restaurant, busy, professionally run, and worth the splurge!
