My friend and I discovered Le Petit Oiseau (Little Bird) while walking back to our hotel. It was filled for dinner that night so we quickly made a reservation for the following evening.
As others have stated, the cuisine is French and the preparation and quality of ingredients are top notch. My friend had the Trout which was fresh, meaty, sweet and perfectly cooked.
I had the pork chop which had been milk brined and was the most tender I've ever tasted.
It was quite a large portion and I ate far more than usual because it was SO GOOD!!
My only complaint was the stacking of the food on the plate. Not sure why the pork chop is placed on top of the asparagus when you have to then rearrange everything to get to the elements on your plate. I know it's fashionable to do this but certainly makes getting to the food a bit awkward :-)
We shared a lovely salad as a first course and a wonderful Rubarb Tart Tatin for dessert.
My friend doesn't drink alcohol so I ordered wine off of the "by the glass" list and found it to be a lovely offering of both French and Oregon wines.
The service was friendly, helpful and relaxed. Little Bird is a restaurant I would recommend to my foodie friends and definitely return to next time I'm in Portland.
